Word is that Gannett is into making money and not into the suck-ass News Journal.

This investor conference call transcript tends to support the buzz on the street. If the suits at Gannett want to know why the paper is underperforming and what to do to fix it they should have asked me.

1) Fire Doug Williams. He only goes to press with loving backrubs of Delaware’s ruling elite and wouldn’t recognize investigative journalism if it bit him in the ass.

2) Fire the rest of the Editorial Board. Those fossiles must be a huge drain on the bottom line and what do they add? Jack squat.

H.L. Mencken said “A journalist’s job is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.” The News Journal under the editorship of Doug Williams version is “A journalist’s job is to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted.” Who needs that bullshit? Good riddance.
