More evidence CNHI corporate bosses are clueless

  1. So, our publisher "resigns." Corporate orc says here is the story you will write about this. There will be no mugshot. It will not be on the front page, and it weighed in at a comprehensive three inches. Oh yeah, it was buried on C1.
    It was a complete disgrace. If any other member of the business community of a similarly-sized business and with a similar public persona had resigned, we would have put the story on the front page and had multiple interviews.
    The executive editor was fuming. He wasn't in the building when those decisions were made.
    So a month later, Corporate orc announces at 10 a.m. there is a big meeting. No executive editor, no assistant editor just a handful of reporters in attendance, meet your new publisher.
    Here's the kicker, the story announcing the new publisher is not allowed to mention that another publisher existed. And the story appeared on the business page.
    Oh wait, there's more. During announcement meeting Corporate shill says he learned while working in newspapers to always err on the side of newsroom judgment: That there is a line between the advertising department and the newsroom and he never crosses it. Unless, of course, its a story about a messy internal job change. So much for the transparency we demand from other institutions.
    Nothing new here, really. Just more proof of the already abundantly clear.

    kimron: Join the club, my friend. Been there (in June), done that. Going by the formula at my CNHI POS, your ad director will be next.
