The days of the mainstream media as Gatekeeper is long gone, so when McClatchy doesn't give readers current info on financial problems, readers get the message McClatchy is arrogant. (Hat tip: comments)
You will notice that The Star hasn’t said BOO! about the whole McClatchy Company unstoppably-auguring-into-the-ground-at-32-feet-per-second-per-second thang since Mark “I’m So in Denial I Make George Bush Look Smart” Zieman reluctantly published the company memo back on the 6th of February. At this rate every writer at The Star will have ongoing blogs before the paper acknowledges it has an ‘issue’.
Frankly, The Star’s silence on its impending demise is morally reprehensible. There is no excuse or defense for its silence. Absolutely none. C’mon, guys. Wake up! What’s left of your readership deserves to know what you plan to do and in what timeframe.
