  2. After reading the article, it sounds like, "We don't have any new ideas, so we'll just keep muddling along like we are now, but with fewer people."

    Improvements for Web site visitors? Most papers I know have cut their online staff to the bone already and are dependent upon print side editors/writers to post stories.

    Agreed.

    True story:

    We had 11 people in our newsroom laid off early this year. At a meeting, the following conversation ocurred:

    REPORTER: So, who will be updating our website now?

    PUBLISHER: The same person who always does.

    REPORTER: You laid him off yesterday.

    That person who "always did it" actually held the title of WEB EDITOR!

    One problem newspapers have is that they don't really get the web and keep moving newspaper people into web roles. Their idea is to put newspaper stories online. Brilliant!

    We post our own stories, write our own web headlines, post pictures, link stories, etc.
