SHOCK!!! BOTTOM LINE: EVEN MORE DEAD TREE MEDIA FURLOUGHS ON THE WAY!!!
This is the way Dead Tree Media ends . . . Very much like vinyl records but with way more whining:
CHECK OUT A STAR FURLOUGH MEMO OBTAINED BY BOTTOM LINE COMMUNICATIONS
"Star President and Publisher Mi-Ai Parrish noted that revenue projections “continue to track below prior year.”
"Because of this situation she has ordered another round of furloughs at the McClatchy-owned newspaper, which has gone through this drill now for years.
"All senior team members and most full-time employees are required to take a one-week furlough by June 30."
By and large I'm not celebrating the downfall of a bygone and outdated mode of communication . . . Although there's a few former and current Star employees I wish they could fire twice.
Still, the point of all this is clear . . .
THERE IS NO FUTURE IN PRINTING LOCAL HISTORY ON DEAD TREES AND CALLING IT NEWS!!! THE DAYS OF AN ARMY OF TRUCKS DELIVERING PAPER TO THE DOORSTEP OF THE CITY ARE OVER!!!
Meanwhile TV news continues to be underrated when it comes to the great deal of journalism they conduct AND more often than not the Internets is now the most viable outlet for the written word, a bit of journalism and more discussion and community than Dead Tree Media ever offered.
DEVELOPING . . .
