Cause And Effect?

I noted six months ago that the local paper was getting rid of some of their best reporters, as well as Stuart Carlson, the editorial cartoonist that would cover local issues as well as the national ones.

I lamented that the paper was becoming even more conservative and what that would mean to get an honest news story around here.

Apparently, their new business plan of all conservatism all the time isn't working the way they wanted it to. They are now talking about laying off more workers and freezing the pay for the rest.

I don't have a lot of hope for the way that they are going. And I will definitely be canceling my recently renewed subscription when it becomes Patrick McIlheran's personal daily diary and GOP press release center, since he will be the only one remaining.

  1. The one comment on the Business Journal article is amusing: "If you moved the paper from way left to the middle you might pick up readership..." wrote a Mr. Al Nosbusch. Apparently he thinks Paddy Mac is too soft on conservative thinking...
