Can you summarize without getting sued? I’m not interested in driving the click count up.

All you need to know is this

[QUOTE]McClatchy reports $37.5 million loss[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE]McClatchy said Thursday its loss amounted to 45 cents per share. That’s much larger than its loss of $849,000, or 1 cent per share, a year ago.[/QUOTE]
Brilliant reporting, spoon feed me something else.

If this is truly an outsider, this is great, word is getting around!

			I cancelled my Observer subscription when they reported on nothing but the UNC basketball team for a solid month.  

A co worker told me UNCC defeated the UNC baseball team during that stretch and the story was pulled from the paper because some higher-ups at the Observer did not want it known the local team can beat their school. That did it for me. The paper is more concerned about teams 200 miles away than in its own city. Why should I read it?[/QUOTE]

I know it doesn’t work exactly like this, but it is not good when a 54 cent stock loses 45 cents a share

It looks like there are about 6 or 7 comments mentioning the way they treat us and chapel hill… at least half of all the comments made.

Mike told me I sounded like a broken record when I tried to tell him fans of ALL schools get tired of the heavy tarhole promotions, including some chapel hill grads I know.

LIVE VIDEO of McClatchy sending invites for their next board meeting.

The Charlotte Observer rep makes an appearance right around 0:44. Although I’m sure many of you will recognize him without prompting.

:lmao: that was pretty funny joe.

having been caught up in the mcclatchy layoffs first hand… unless **** turns around, and advertising revenues pick back up, I’ld expect another round of mcclatchy layoffs in June. pure speculation on my part.

Fact of the matter is newsprint is an outdated, dying medium. Most people just read stories on the web. If they wish to survive they need to cut their overhead. They can still do editorials and local news and hopefully local sports but leave the rest to the big boys. Also most employees would work from home and the actual printed newspaper would have to be greatly reduced in size. Either that or run sat-sun exclusively. Most people I know only buy on these days anyway.

I wonder when epsncharlotte.com is coming out? This whole idea by espn will end sports for the local papers, online and print.

Most newspapers are going to die, at least in print, within 20 years. Only a few national and specialty papers will survive.

It would be wise for McClatchy to look to create regional rags rather than local ones to slow the bleeding. The end game though is obviously online which they have proven to be incredibly inept in adapting to this channel.

The issue I’ve always had with the O is that their news IS editorial opinion. They refuse to acknowledge that their news reporting is heavily biased to the left politically, and their sports is biased to the east. Even the Sunday comics section shrank many good strips, but left Doonesbury full-size. It shouldn’t even be in the comics, anyway.

I generally enjoy Sorenson’s writing, and will miss him when they fail, but won’t miss much else.

DISCLAIMER: no offense to you or any other individual associated (or formerly) with McClatchy businesses (even Mike Persinger).

I just have issues with the product called the Charlotte Observer.
