Who Do You Rely On?

 I was disappointed that MSNBC didn't drop out of Locked Up to cover Charlottesville. CNN's History of Comedy was scheduled to run in the one o'clock hour and they pull it to cover the story. I don't get the point of Locked Up either. I seriously doubt there are people who need convinced prison sucks.

I've got good news and I've got bad news. The bad news is that I have lost my way. The good news is that I'm way ahead of schedule.

I wasn't really sure where else to put this, so this thread was the winner.  The Charleston Gazette-Mail just filed for bankruptcy, continuing a sad trend of local papers disappearing.  An attorney by the name of Robert McLusky celebrated the loss at a coal conference recently by mocking a journalist who worked at the paper and extensively covered the coal industry with a pink slip.  McLusky works for Jackson Kelly, the law firm that the Gazette-Mail discovered was withholding evidence of black lung disease at the expense of sick miners in a Pulitzer Prize-winning series that can be found here:

Coal reporter Taylor Kuykendall reported on McLusky's behavior at the conference:

So, what I'm getting at is that it's vital to support local newspapers.


These guys...

...Yeah, I know I'm an idiot...


Who do we rely on?  Regarding the ivory trade, we relied on Esmond Bradley Martin, and he was just stabbed to death:


Bumping this thread because apparently Medium thinks I like Caitlin Johnstone and I need a second, or third, opinion on her.

Hopefully, no one is relying on Liberty University's newspaper:

Quote:Kirk told the new staffers, “Your job is to keep the LU reputation and the image as it is. … Don’t destroy the image of LU. Pretty simple. OK? Well you might say, ‘Well, that’s not my job, my job is to do journalism. My job is to be First Amendment. My job is to go out and dig and investigate, and I should do anything I want to do because I’m a journalist.’ So let’s get that notion out of your head. OK?”

He added, “It’s their newspaper. They can stop this newspaper today if they wanted to. And just so you know, they can do it. Too much trouble, too many problems, we’re getting ourselves in hot water, you guys are doing stories we can’t defend. We’re gonna stop.”

The whole article is worth a read.
Pittsburgh is now the largest U.S. city without a daily newspaper:

Quote:After many iterations, Pittsburgh’s last remaining daily, the 232-year-old Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, cut its print production schedule from seven days a week to five, eliminating physical copies of the Tuesday and Saturday editions, starting this weekend.

The news organization said it is looking to reposition itself as a more digitally focused outlet, amid widespread economic contractions facing newspapers.

PG Executive Editor David Shribman wrote that eliminating two print issues allows it to focus more on “undertaking a full-throttle commitment to the digital delivery of news…” In a subsequent letter to readers and subscribers, the PG said print editions would be eliminated on Tuesdays and Saturdays, but it will continue publishing e-editions on those days.

Shribman told The Incline that the production shift won’t coincide with newsroom layoffs now. He was unaware what it might mean on the production end, referring additional questions to the Post-Gazette’s chief marketing officer, Tracey DeAngelo, whose office declined comment when reached by The Incline.
