An independent journal about the Gannett Co. and the news industry's digital transition
Has there been any coverage in any Gannett newspapers of the Kermit Gosnell trial?Has any editor spiked any coverage?
Wilmington editor has order coverage and displayed it on page one
Just love this presumption than an editor would go out of his/her way to distort coverage. Another Fox parrot.
When news media runs 100 times more stories about Rutgers basketball than the Kermit Gosnell trial, I think it's a fair presumption of an agenda.BREAKING NEWS: A homosexual kid has been verbally bullied in rural Massachusetts! News choppers are on their way!
Breaking news - this was a news story in 2011. The coverage of the recent news on the grand jury was covered 10 inches in my site's A section, and only that because of the USAToday column of recent vintage.But nationally? This story has two things against it - abortion and race. "All abortion should be legal and minorities don't matter", you might as well put that on our business cards instead of the first amendment.Not just us - when is the last time CNN followed the story of any missing black woman for over a day, or did a real 360 degree story on abortion?

The difference between coverage of Kermit Gosnell and Adam Lanza, and their respective victims, tells you everything you need to know about the pathetic bias and uselessness of the lamestream media.And if, when someone points this out, your first impulse is crabby muttering about Fox News... you're part of the problem.
“In retrospect, we regret not having staffed the trial sooner. But, as you know, we don’t have unlimited resources, and . . . there is a lot of competition for our staff’s attention.”Washington Posthttp://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/style/is-media-bias-to-blame-for-lack-of-gosnell-coverage-or-something-far-more-banal/2013/04/14/473e6668-a536-11e2-a8e2-5b98cb59187f_story.html
11:44 AM - Thanks for proving the point.
King Larry Kramer has ordered up a number of stories since he has been at Usa Today. He doesnt know the names of most of his staff, but he knows how to throw his weight around for his friends and favorite hobbies. Priorities, anyone?
He knows the names of the folks that contribute. It's the whinners he tries to forget!!!!
Has any more advertising managers in New Jersey quit in the past week?
No but a sales rep was let go
A week from tomorrow the first quarter financials will be made public.Will heads roll or will their be dancing in the streets? Stock is up, oh boy, but inflated for no reason and revenues have certainly not shot through the roof.Looks like it could be another tough day to be on the layoff hot seat.
It sounds like the truth hurts.
Last week someone was asking if we'd seen any recent JC Penny's ads in the papers. In the Sunday paper yesterday there was a 4-page slick insert, but no inside ad in my paper in the South.
From an article in today's Wall St. Journal:Win Points EarlyMs. Banikarim, hired by Gannett in 2011, quickly encountered colleagues skeptical about her newly created position because "marketing wasn't a huge priority," she remembers. She says she realized she needed to settle in fast, then try novel tactics with demonstrable results."She is a bit impatient, which I think is a good thing," remarks her boss, CEO Gracia Martore.For instance, Ms. Banikarim and colleagues rapidly organized Gannett's first investor day this February, which its full board also attended. The event generated favorable feedback from shareholders, she says. "That was a success.''
Banikarim might have won points early had she not focused on marketing herself instead of at Gannett’s expence (i.e. the stories about her versus her employer). Unfortunately, those efforts also exposed she was learning on the job, something Gannett could ill afford as it should have hired someone who hit the ground running.Link to WSJ piece: tinyurl.com/cvvpe8m
What a bunch of BS. Investor Day was one big waste of time, effort, and energy that yielded nothing.
You are right. The stock only soared after Investor's Day. Another guy that need to take a busienss class
Looks like BBB never gets tired of promoting herself, but wasn't the first investor day last year?
10:16 On investor day 2/22/12, Gannett opened @15.18 and closed @15.61. That's hardly "soaring." But perhaps 'that was a success' by Gannett's standards. Two weeks later, the stock was back down to @14.56. And on 3/16 it was @15.21. Gannett's stock rises and falls due to changes and fluctuations in the market NOT because of anything Gannett does as a company in product development or marketing.Investor Day was nothing more than a amateurishly created "show" for investors to say that print was not dead (yet) and the company was innovative and all into 'digital' - 10 years too late. For the people who worked very hard to put on the event from gathering information for the speeches to making name tags for the guests, it was definitely not worth the time for the results it had.
11:37 what is the price of the stock today? Sorry it's not in the tank. Investor Day worked as planned. Sorry my company continues to embrace new technology and is moving forward. Please get another job and leave.
Making name tags is very hard work? Fail, 11:37. Your post was not worth the time it took to type.
Purpose Wall. VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Haha, that lasted all of 5 minutes! A victory indeed - by Gannett standards.
