An independent journal about the Gannett Co. and the news industry's digital transition
To extend the length of this year's shareholders' meeting, they'll have something to "brag" about.
No one who reads or advertises in a Gannett brand newspaper could possibly believe Dubow's BS.Virtually everyone on my block has cancelled their subscription over the past two years. People get tired of spending more for less.READERS AND ADVERTISERS AREN'T AS STUPID AS GANNETT MANAGEMET.
In my sub-division of over 50 individual homes, not one home receives the local Gannett paper! How much worse can it get? And most of the local stores we patronize don't use the local newspaper anymore because they get no results yet the ad rates keep going up and up. I asked one (former frequent advertiser) who used to have ads weekly how they advertise and they told me it certainly isn't this newspaper. Their return on the investment was horrid. Probably because hardly anyone sees their ads due to such poor circulation stats.Put a fork in them...they're done!
What he meant to say was:"Our commitment to delivering our former readers to Patch is fundamental and unwavering so top management can suck the marrow from the corpse of this company as we continue to grow our (off shore) bank accounts."
12:46 spot on with Patch, which had thorough coverage of a suicide jumper from the Tappan Zee Bridge and recovery of the body shortly after it happened. The Journal News had nothing on LoHud until the following day.
If there was any sort of commitment to quality journalism within this company, Kate Marymont would be trotted out front to lead the charge. As is, she is a non-player. I'd like to know what she thinks of all this. I'd like to think she was mad as hell, not just sitting back collecting a fat check and waiting to collect a fat pension.
This statement reminds me of the scene in "Mars Attacks!" where the Martians blast the hell out of everyone while continuing to say, "We mean you no harm."
Garbage in, garbage out. This clown should be in a different business. Selling soap. Or shoes. Or condoms.
Spin as they will, but the best way to show commitment to journalism is through cash. Cutting editorial’s numbers says something far different.
Gannett may wrap itself in a First Amendment flag, yet as with all US media is willing to trade a constitutional guarantee for government favors.An American man accused of killing two Pakistan citizens is in a Pakistan jail. Last month Gannett-owned 9News (KUSA-TV) in Denver reported a major development -- the jailed American was a CIA agent. According to the Guardian, one of England's "quality dailies," 9News scrubbed the CIA angle on orders of the US government. (AP, NYTimes and WashPost likewise sat on the story, which allowed the Brits to uncover it.)
Jim says: "Proceed with caution; this is a free-for-all comment zone. I try to correct or clarify incorrect information. But I can't catch everything. Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
