decisive thoughts for precise living
Both were wonderful, talented colleagues...nothing but friends and family left in the newsroom.
Seems I have heard of some secret meetings going on that should have been kept quiet. LANG and P/E etc. Wonder what those tow genius organizations and others could be hatching?
Seems about right. The P-E is about down to the numbers they were ten years ago when LANG took over The Sun.Streamlined and floating with a broken rudder, they are prime for the boarding.Gee, what comes around.....
Anyone that works for A. H. Belo has seen the onzie/twozie layoffs in each department every month- They are laying off in small numbers to stay under the radar.
Maybe I have my head up my ass, but, there has to be a better way to handle an economic downturn, communication, and layoffs. If a news organization charged with fair and balanced reporting can't communicate well, we are doomed.
Yes, you do....said in jest. When you have top department heads that are more worried about their mortgage than the fairness of how they reduce resouces, then there is a major problem. In many ways The P-E newsroom employees would be better served in LANG's hands as there would be a more balanced selection of who is dismissed. With hope it would be determined by the quality of work and not who you know.
I know many people over many years in many news organizations...talent and ability are not the guiding lights in who stays or goes. For the most part it never has been. Some base it on seniority, not talent, some base it on who you know, not talent, and some place it on whether you have a polaroid of the boss with a sheep.
"polaroid of the boss with a sheep"Now that would fall under talent.
