McClatchy CEO comes out strong for papers in Miami Herald interview

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by Jersey_Guy, Jun 26, 2006.

  1. One guy has jeered and doubted him. And even if we were doubting him, it's called skepticism, borne out of being burned by the business. It happens. As someone who works for a McClatchey company (as of today) I'm also hopeful, but waiting for the actual results.

    Saying good things = yawn

    Doing good things = super

    In case you've forgotten, we are paid to be doubtful. It's part of the job description.

    BINGO! Thank you all for explaining. Just like I found out with my girlfriend - She could say she loves me, but I learned she really did cause she SHOWED me.

    It's cliched, but in this biz, actions do speak louder than words.

    What did she do? Sign a prenup?

    We don't need to go into details. ;D

    Back on topic -- I'd like to be hopeful, and think Pruitt is a sharp guy. But I got to see some action, and results.

    No, we are not paid to be blindly doubtful.
    We're paid to find out the truth and print it.
    As for Tony's point about "showing you love me," McClatchy just bought a boatload of newspapers when few others in the world think their future is worth a damn. If that's not "showing you," what the heck is?

    That's a first step. A nice one. But still, a first step.
  9. Twoback, I think it's reasonable for those of us in the new McClatchey family to worry whether taking on all these new papers will lead to some "adjusting" down the road. And part of finding out the truth is at first doubting, and then verifying. In this case we can only wait and hope, rather than storm up to the corporate office and raising a shit storm.
