Please, board of directors, DO SOMETHING. This operation is collapsing before our eyes, and we get nothing _ NOTHING _ from Sacto. No advice, no encouragement, no discouragement, no plans. NOTHING. Please, bosrd of directors, ask what these people are doing to justify their paychecks, other than driving down the stock and turning control of this company to the banks that hold the debts.

Meyer teaches journalism at the University of North Carolina.

[“newspapers are too smart for their readers.”]

“Today's journalists, already the most educated crop of reporters and editors ever, need more ongoing education so they can interview with sophistication, research with understanding and report with credibility, but when it's time to write, [shed the sheepskins and scribble their stories at a sixth- to eighth-grade level,] a range he identifies as the sweet spot of newspaper readability.”
