Mr. Patterico’s Opus

Saturday, December 31, 2005  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

His year end review of the sad, slow, steady decline of a once great newspaper is up.

If I was the CEO of the Tribune Company, I would asked editor Naquet for a list of his editors, a list of his reporters, and a list of his columnists ranked from most talented to least talented and then simply dismiss the lower half from each list and instruct Baquet to start rebuilding with young reporters who had previously written some piece that was judged fair by a center-right conservative. Readers would never notice anything except an improvement in the paper. And it will never get better until and unless they have a massive shake-out of the entrenched deadwood still telling each other that they are losing circulaytion because of the n o call list, and that the complaints about the paper’s bias is just silly frothing from the far right.
