Salon Media Group Inc., the struggling online magazine, has received a notice from its auditors expressing substantial doubts about its ability to continue. In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the firm said the auditor's opinion was based on its history of losses. The company, which was formed in 1995 and has won numerous journalism awards, has never made a profit and recently has suffered steep declines in ad revenue. Salon shares fell 1 cent, or 10%, to 9 cents on Nasdaq.

The Well, an eclectic online community whose profits haven't quite measured up to its pioneering influence, is being put on the sales block by its current owner, Web publisher Salon Media Group Inc. "We have really ambitious goals with Salon and didn't want to dilute our efforts by trying to support two different brands," said Elizabeth Hambrecht, Salon's chief executive.
As the latest round in Washington's greatest guessing game builds to a crescendo on Monday's 30th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, the award-winning online magazine Salon plans to enter the Deep Throat fray with a definitive 40,000-word accusation by scandal veteran John W. Dean III. Or maybe not.

I've felt a bit quaint the last couple of days, toting a pen, a notepad and my old journalism notions around here at the Googleplex. I'd once thought that a journalist's (and journalism's) work ended when a story cleared the copy desk.
