Random Pixels is reporting Jack Dolan, investigative reporter at the Miami Herald, has taken a job at the LA Times. Along with fellow Herald reporters Matthew Haggman and Rob Barry, Dolan won the top award in the Barlett & Steele Awards for Investigative Business Journalism for their 2008 series, "Borrowers Betrayed".
And the talent leak continues. The more McClatchy tries to cut its way to profitability, the more they disregard and disrespect the talent in their ranks. Instead of coming up with new ideas to generate revenue, these idiots are chopping everything in sight and creating an environment where the talent and creativity in their ranks are stifled.
Awards don't mean a thing in the modern newspaper/media world. Only the corporate and newsroom heads even give awards a second thought. Friedman and Krugman have shown they're award-winning clowns who can't be trusted. These dolts get invited to the White House so how is that distancing themselves from stories and how they frame these stories? Good riddance to the award-winning reporter who now joins the LA Times.
Talented people are leaving a mismanaged company with a bozo at the helm who should have been fired 3 years ago.
This is what happens when you fail to treat employees with dignity and do not pay them what they're worth. The Star-Telegram lost one of the best photogs in the country through a buyout last year and he wasn't near retirement age.
More talented people will be leaving as well. They won't fall for the phony lifting of the pay freeze, either. Hey Pru: How is it a raise when your pay is cut
5 percent in 2009 and then you get an increase of less than 5 percent in 2010. Judging by your boneheaded move to put the company $5 billion in debt, math is not your strong point.
***Friedman and Krugman have shown they're award-winning clowns who can't be trusted.***
Says who (other than those whose gods are right-wing talk-show blowhards?)
Krugman and his buddy Friedman are nothing by far left mouthpieces. Only the fringe left nutjobs give these two the time of day. Yukking it up at the Obama table has dropped Friedman's credibility 50 points in the last two days. Two total jokes.
One less "award-winning" journalist it has to pay, is how McClatchy looks at it.
"The Cruelest Cuts"
McClatchy never met an alliteration it doesn't like.
If he is getting the same or better salary this is a good move for him.
At the LA Times, they consider writing, "It's Bush's fault" a days work. More money less work.
