    Gary Bluitt

    Thought this was a good time to listen to McClatchy CEO Gary Pruitt defend the Knight Ridder buy and talk about journalism's promising future -- from early 2007. In it, he quotes Abe Lincoln and Lenny Kravitz and proves he's a clueless tool. I can't believe he still has his job.

    NY Times: Miami Herald Up For Sale

    Bidders welcome The debt-ridden McClatchy Company is trying to unload the Miami Herald, reports the New York Times. So far, it hasn't found any buyers, though. This is huge news, but its not being reported on the Herald home page (or the Sun-Sentinel's -- though it had a brief in this morning's ... More >>

    Now It's Starting to Make Sense

    I thought the Miami Herald was a little quiet on the death of Michael Browning, a writer who was central to the newspaper's identity for a couple of (its finest) decades. No tribute, no guestbook, just a repackaged obit written by Palm Beach Post reporter Scott Eyman. I encouraged the Herald to do ... More >>

    The Gyllenhaal Test

    Here's some true or false questions about soon-to-be Miami Herald editor Anders Gyllenhaal, who is leaving the Minneapolist Star Tribune to take the helm at SFla's most widely circulated daily in a couple of months: 1. He is uncle to movie star siblings Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal. 2. During his ... More >>

    Nielsen on the Herald

    Veteran local journalist (and former MNT writer) Kirk Nielsen has a rollicking good story about the McClatchy purchase of The Miami Herald in the latest edition of LRM Magazine and the Pulp just got a copy. Nothing earth-shattering, but it's tied together by excellent reporting culled from good sour ... More >>

    Kiss my Bee-hind

    Okay, it looks like that Sacramento Bee story I mentioned in the post below has (or had) been shitcanned. I got an e-mail from Bee managing editor Joyce Terhaar saying the newspaper never had a story about the downfall of Miami Herald in the works. I knew differently, since I'd been interviewed for ...

    If It's True ...

    p>I wasn't going to post (about Knight Ridder and McClatchy and other fun things, like the 10-year erection), but I had to point to the St. Pete Times goof-up in running a satiric story on its website as if it were real news. The Times put up a story from Andy Borowitz about the collaboration betwee ... More >>

    Blimp Company Doubles Pleasure With Sun-Sentinel

    The Sun-Sentinel loves blimps. On Sunday, the newspaper ran a story on page 6B about a giant new zeppelin. Reporter Travis Reed, of the Associated Press, told us how an Orlando company called The Lightship Group created a "drive-in movie screen that floats 1,000 feet in the air -- and travels 15 mph ...

    Miami Herald Wrestles With Free Speech

    The Herald has been accepting comments on its web site for stories that appear in the newspaper for about a month now -- and it has the feel of a bold experiment. There seem to be few controls. The editors allow commenting on a handful of potentially controversial stories each day and readers post t ... More >>

    It's The Work, Stupid

    Some thoughts on the Sunshine State Awards: 1. Okay, there's two categories, small newspapers with 50,000 circulation and under and large ones with anything more than that. Ridiculous. It leaves the small class with a dearth of solid competition and a whole class of mid-sized newspapers going up ag ... More >>

    Tube Boobs Take Over Newspaperland

    Newspapers have lost it lately over television. The fearless leaders of the industry seem to think it sells newspapers to talk about television and reporters are more than happy to oblige them by writing about it. Beats work, you know. There's nothing wrong with good TV reporting, but endless jabber ... More >>
