Morning Call ^ | uncredited
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has announced it will stop publishing the newspaper two days a week. According to a letter sent to the newspaper's employee union Wednesday, the newspaper is shrinking its printing schedule as part of a plan to become a digital news organization. The change will go into effect Aug. 25. Officials have not specified which days will be cut. Senior Human Resources Manager Linda Guest says in the letter, “the nature of our operations will change substantially.” The owners of the 232-year-old paper, Ohio-based Block Communications, have not responded to requests for comment.

The New York Times has deftly adapted to the demands of digital journalism, but it needs to change even more quickly, according to an internal report that recommends the company expand training for reporters and editors, hire journalists with more varied skills and deepen engagement with readers as a way to build loyalty and attract the subscriptions necessary to survive. The report, released to The Times newsroom on Tuesday, is the culmination of a year of work by a group of seven journalists who were asked by Dean Baquet, the executive editor, to conduct a review of the newsroom and...

The Nonpareil ^ | April 8, 2017 | Steve Jordon
OMAHA — The parent company of The Daily Nonpareil and The Omaha World-Herald announced last Monday it eliminated 289 jobs across the country, including 108 vacant positions. BH Media Group, based in Omaha, is reducing costs because of declining advertising and circulation revenue. BH Media is the newspaper division of Berkshire Hathaway Inc. It now employs 4,450 people. Terry Kroeger, president and chief executive, said in a memo to BH Media employees that some of the company’s 31 newspapers are reducing other expenses, including the number of pages they print. None of the job cuts were at The Nonpareil or...

Globe, distributor trade blame as delivery woes persist (4-6 month wait?-liberal media death watch)

Boston Globe ^ | 1/4/16 | Mark Arsenault and Dan Adams
Boston Globe executives summoned managers of its new distribution partner to a meeting Sunday to discuss widespread delivery failures, but the day ended with finger pointing and no clarity about when all home subscribers could once again count on getting their newspapers. Behind disruptions affecting up to 10 percent of daily subscribers are two basic problems, both sides said. ACI Media Group Inc., which took over home delivery in Greater Boston last Monday, has yet to hire enough drivers to cover every route. And many of ACI’s new delivery routes lack any logical sequence, leaving drivers criss-crossing communities and making...

Extra Extra! Just two years after purchasing the Orange County Register promising to resuscitate print media in America, Chief executive and Chairman, Aaron Kushner, and President, Eric Spitz, handed in their resignation at the paper and parent company Freedom Communications Inc. After a symphony of staff reductions, furloughs, closures of the Los Angeles and Long Beach papers, and at one point actually having the reporters deliver the papers, the decimated company heads to the selling block. Tuesday reporters assembled at the Orange County Register headquarters in Santa Ana awaiting the announcement. Kushner stood mostly silent, according to several employees who...

The Los Angeles Times Business ^ | November 14, 2014 | Andrew Khouri
The Orange County Register is now asking its reporters and other staff members to deliver papers.. Amid continued problems with newspaper deliveries, the paper is offering employees up to $150 in Visa gift cards to deliver hundreds of newspapers on Sundays and Thanksgiving, according to a sign-up form contained in an email to employees Thursday. The effort is part is the Register's "We Care" campaign, launched after a switch in carriers left thousands of papers undelivered. Previously, the Register asked staffers to make customer service calls to those affected. The unusual requests signal that problems persist since the Register switched...

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Toledo Free Press Publisher Tom Pounds says the paper will be shutting down operations. Pounds says financial troubles are the reason he's closing the paper. “When you can't pay your bills, you don't keep going,” Pounds said Monday. Pounds says about 50 families in total will be impacted by the decision to cease publication. That includes 10 full-time employees, as well as writers, paper carriers, artists and others who worked on the Free Press's weekly issues. Even as he announced the decision to shut down, Pounds said he's proud of what the Free Press...

Former sports broadcaster Keith Olbermann left ESPN so he could say all the things he didn’t feel he could say at ESPN, and he is certainly saying all of those things. On Tuesday, during an unhinged rant about President Trump and his response to the coronavirus, Olbermann said that the president should be given the “death penalty” for “each count” of the 220,000 Americans who have died from the virus.

At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for “Death to Israel,” “Death to America” and “From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!” Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a “Day of Rage” event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley. Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and anti-American to just plain absurd. One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the...

Survival on Social Media Run By Leftists: Watch Your Friends and Watch What You Say!

There have been several instances on social media in which those who hold to values not favored by the Left have found themselves and their groups warned, suspended and even banned for expressing themselves, while Left-leaning groups have gotten away with much worse. Remember that conservatives, Republicans, libertarians and other advocates of universal values, freedom, equality under the law and individual responsibility are held to a different standard here on Facebook and other social media venues. There was a notorious example in which Facebook required a rape survivor to use her “real name” because she testified against a “transgender” bathroom...

The death of Peter Jennings and the state of the American media (Media flashback)

WSWS ^ | August 11, 2005 | David Walsh
From an objective standpoint, that ABC television devoted virtually all of its “World News Tonight” August 8 to the death by lung cancer of its former anchorman Peter Jennings was rather astonishing. The war in Iraq continues, starvation stalks Niger, the price of oil is soaring, the Japanese government has collapsed—and ABC felt that it should give over its nightly review of international affairs to a man who, when all is said and done, was best known for reading the news. Rival news programs, on NBC and CBS, also dedicated an inordinate amount of time to Jennings’ passing. One can...

If the media were doing their job, they might ask these important COVID questions: So many nations have better COVID death stats than the USA. Why won't the media bother asking how that can be?

Joe "China" Biden took office, and suddenly, Democratic Party governors begin loosening their China virus lockdowns. Joe's in charge, don'cha know, so the virus is on its way out. Heck, even the World Health Organization finally admits that the settings commonly used for COVID tests produce far too many false positives, thus inflating the number of cases and contributing to the panic engendered by months of media exaggeration and fear-mongering.Meanwhile, journalism continues to fail us in digging into what is going on with COVID, ignoring an area of inquiry that could enlighten us about the real effects of the virus...

The Lexington Herald-Leader ^ | September 26, 2015 | Sam Youngman
LEXINGTON,Ky. — Rand Paul was right. In January 2014, the day after The Atlantic anointed Paul, Kentucky’s junior U.S. Senator, as the Republican frontrunner in the 2016 presidential race, Paul told the Herald-Leader “it’s still too early probably to talk about things like that.” “That sounds unlucky to me,” he said. Less than two years later, Paul’s luck, it seems, is running out. Campaigning on Friday in New Hampshire, Paul continues to charge ahead with his struggling presidential campaign, but speculation is growing that he might be the next Republican candidate to drop out of the race. Former Texas Gov....

The Deutsche Bank Death Watch Has Taken A Very Interesting Turn

The biggest bank in Europe is in the process of imploding, and there are persistent rumors that the final collapse could happen sooner rather than later. Those that follow my work on a regular basis already know that this is a story that I have been following for years. Deutsche Bank is rapidly bleeding cash, they have been laying off thousands of workers, and the vultures have been circling as company executives desperately try to implement a turnaround plan. Unfortunately for Deutsche Bank, it may already be too late. And if Deutsche Bank goes down, it will be even more...

Conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe released his latest startling video this week, offering evidence that Arkansas Democrat U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor has been lying to his constituents about his position on marriage. Ahead of next month’s election, the lawmaker has reiterated his ostensible support of traditional marriage as he battles a tough conservative Republican opponent. According to the footage published by O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, however, Pryor’s true feelings on the matter are much different. Speaking to the chairperson of a pro-gay Arkansas Young Democrats organization, an undercover investigator posing as a homosexual potential campaign donor expressed his “misgivings” about Pryor regarding his stated...

Death Watch: Donna Brazile To Be Fired as DNC Chair

“She could be gone by Thursday or Friday,” the DNC source said. “Wikileaks is her undoing. Who knows what else they have on her. She’s a complete liability and is hurting Hillary at this point. She has no long term upside as chair. She’s not that charismatic to begin with.” The DNC insider said Brazile might last until after the election next week, given the FBI-provoked tailspin the Clinton campaign is trying to pull out from. Firing Brazile this week may ultimately throw gasoline on what appears to be a week-long Democratic bonfire, the source said. But the party might...

Washington Post ^ | 12/02/2015 | By Renae Merle and Hayley Tsukayama
Big changes may be coming for Yahoo as the company's board meets and reportedly considers a plan to sell the company's core business — the search and advertising sections of the 20-year-old company that have struggled to compete with Google and Facebook. The radical proposal, however, is being precipitated by a relatively mundane financial issue -- taxes. With Yahoo struggling to keep up with rivals, its Web business -- e-mail, search, social platforms and news sites -- have tumbled in value. Right now, the company has a total market value of $34 billion. But much of that is because it...

With three northern white rhinos left in the world, the only male is gravely ill, raising fears the subspecies is getting closer to extinction. Sudan made headlines last year when the Tinder dating app named him the “most eligible bachelor in the world” in a campaign to raise funds to save the subspecies. At 45, considered elderly in rhino years, the animal lives at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya with two female northern white rhinos — Fatu and Najin. They are the last three northern white rhinos.
