Classic Gary Pruitt -- here's a 2007 video of Gary Pruitt explaining how the Knight Ridder purchase will lead McClatchy to new heights

You have to watch this video to believe it. Here's McClatchy CEO Gary Pruitt, surely the most overrated newspaper CEO of his generation, explaining how the Knight Ridder purchase was a brilliant move.

I posted this video back in September but today seems like a good time to post it again. (7:43)

By the way, this video was made about the same time that Gary Pruitt quietly sold 40,040 shares of McClatchy stock.

Don't forget the 10,060 shares he acquired and sold the day before but reported a week later.

Gary Pruitt took McClatchy from a ’leading-edge’ to a 'bleeding-edge' company.
