Editors, and how bad ones are ruining the newspaper business
I am a former Gannett employee (who voluntarily bailed a decade ago for greener pastures) and none of this surprises me. Aside from looting the till while paying employees peanuts, the leaders are absolute hypocrites.In the 1990s Gannett thought it could boost readership with laughable programs like News 2000 and "mainstreaming," which essentially mandated that a certain percentage of people quoted in stories needed to be minorities. Never mind that the number of minorities in senior leadership positions was abysmal and representation on the board even worse.A few years ago a bunch of Gannett ex-pats got loose and are running the AP. Or, more accurately, running it into the ground.
