Bunch of Newspapers About to Needlessly Hit the Skids

This time it’s Newhouse/Advance’s turn to destroy a newspaper: the New Orleans Times-Picayune, to be specific, which will fire a bunch of people, stop publishing daily and generally be suckier. (Also: “a new company, NOLA Media Group, will run the newspaper and its website, and another new company will print and deliver the paper.” Innnntriguing.) Enjoy your new life blogging on this hot mess! Your move, McClatchy! Oh wait, Jake Gyllenhaal’s uncle has got the destruction covered, okay, great. The whole thing about corporate reorganizing is most interesting: “Tribune and Advance are creating subsidiary companies for their newspapers.” Hey, that’s what I would do if I were going to dump them.
