Sunday night I was leafing through my Sunday Journal and on one of the inside front section pages an ad jumps out at me with a picture of a former colleague who I know just left the paper.
The 1/4-page ad quotes the reporter and encourages readers to check out her writing in the paper.
Here's the quote: "It's become more important than ever for professional journalists to provide the public with accurate and objective news."
That's true, but for her own preservation she has taken another job, out of newspapers, as of last Monday. So if readers want to check out her writing they will have to go to the archives.
Someone needs to send a memo to the centralized copy desk and keep them up to date on the personnel changes.
I wish her nothing but the best, she was one of the best writers at the paper and also one of the hardest workers. A huge loss for the paper.
