For an interesting story on a newspaper being covered by a newspaper, go to the Independent Weekly’s story about ongoing changes at The News & Observer.
Here’s the link: http://www.indyweek.com/gyrobase/Content?oid=oid%3A48019
The N&O editors sound just like government or corporate officials sound when they’re caught in an uncomfortable situation they have a hard time explaining.
If you’ve ever been in that position – and not liked the way the story came out – you’ll enjoy reading the same thing happening to the N&O.
My free and unsolicited advice to the N&O:
- Just admit you don’t know exactly how you’re going to muddle through the brave new worlds of chain ownership and New Media.
- But say that your goal is the same as always: give our readers the news the best and quickest and most accurate way possible.
- Don’t keep saying you have a plan, when you can’t say what the plan is.
