    McClatchy house ... University of South Carolina shill for a publisher ... shell of its former self.

    Indeed. Frankly, I'm surprised they're filling the vacancy. I expected them to shift deck chairs as the boat continued to sink.

    Spent one year there in the mid-1990s and had a lot of fun. Can't speak to the current product or staff, but the town is cool, the fans are beyond nuts, and Williams-Brice is a 10-minute walk from the office. Imagine if you are a young editor who likes the south, you could do much worse.
  5. Given McClatchy's recent layoffs and buyouts in the region, you will be the first out the door. Probably in 12 months or less.
