Newspaper Giant Gannett Faces More Layoffs
Amid Disastrous Quarter and Recession Fears

Up until around August of 2021, I was doing some contract work with a Gannett/USA Today Network paper. A friend, who happened to be one of their reporters, and I had put together a podcast and had some minor local success with it. We were able to bring in local businesses and craftspeople to talk about their inspirations, hobbies, families, and how all of these things impacted what they did. The podcast was about two years old when I was told that we couldn’t continue. The order was given to minimize contractor work to save money. It wasn’t the first time

This is the company that ruined The Army,Navy, Air Force,Marine Corps Times,etc. They turned them into left wing rags and then sold them off. They are now worthless rags.

No one will pay for your lies? Perhaps you could sell Truth? But where would you find writers who could write truth? Fire all of your professional leftist liars and start over with truth. Never going to happen. They'll go out of business before they'll stop the leftist propaganda.

Most of their articles appear to be cut & paste material from Twitter (or worse). They are a jumble of liberal talking points with no depth.

I don't even get our local paper. I am sick of looking at all of the liberal editorials and comments. Why would I get a national paper? I miss reading the comics etc. but not worth it. . .

The real problem is newspapers are the modern equivalent of buggy whips. The market for old news is limited to the old folks at home. Online "print", streaming, and broadcast are the delivery systems of fresh, updated news content. Video content is a must. And the newspapers, like those buggy whip manufacturers, just don't get it. Their ink stained wretches don't produce any of that. And what they do produce is...questionable, delivered with a viewpoint. As they say, maybe the dogs don't like the dog food.

I always took the local paper, and the WSJ. I’d read USA Today when traveling for business and it was free at hotels. Eventually there was no point, they gutted the local news coverage, they’d just pick up NYT, AP and WaPo for National “news”, and the editorials were predictably left. Moved to “red” Idaho, but the local press is no different, so no thanks. I still get the WSJ, at least for now, the editorial page is tolerable, the rest of it is pretty much MSM party line though.

RE#8 Once upon a time, I would sit down Sunday morning with my cup of coffee, or three, and read the Sunday newspaper. Now, I sit down with my coffee and cell phone and peruse current news in real time from multiple sources. I would posit that the true benefits of newspapers today are: Puppy training, Bird cage lining, packing material and starting fires in the fireplace.

Ever since I could read I've loved all print media and that included news papers. My parents used to get the local paper delivered by the paperboy throwing it at our door. That thud we heard in the morning let us know that Andy (a friend of mine and my brothers) put it there. I used to get the local paper, USA Today, WSJ, and The Washington Times. That in the 90s before the internet took off and everyone became a .COM, .ORG of a .NET. Now you could've give a newspaper to me for free as the majority have become leftist rags that aren't worthy of being fish wrap or a puppy potty training tool. And yes #1 that company ruined the Navy Times which I used to read when I was active duty.

When attempting to rank or evaluate something or someone, context is everything. For instance, if we want to proclaim that a professional baseball player is an exceptional first baseman, we must first establish context. Are we comparing that player only to other first baseman playing today, in which case the bar is lower than it might otherwise be? Or are we comparing to him every first baseman who has ever played the game, in which case the great Lou Gehrig is indisputably the gold standard? Context is critical. So too does context affect one’s effort in trying to establish the qualifications of a country.

Eric Adams, New York City’s new Democratic mayor, had an extraordinarily low bar to clear when it came to being perceived as an improvement compared to his predecessor. Adams succeeded the far-left groundhog murderer Bill DeBlasio who, for reasons that are still unclear, decided to run for president and couldn’t get his polling numbers out of the single digits in his own city. DeBlasio was a disaster. He virtue-signaled at every opportunity while simultaneously destroying the fabric of underprivileged communities. Along with Governor Andrew Cuomo, DeBlasio oversaw the single worst response to the COVID pandemic by both allowing the highest number of per capita virus-related deaths and obliterating his city’s economy.

Governors in states along our southern border have been vocal in their concerns regarding illegal immigration for years. Their school and health care systems can’t handle the additional workload, they explained. The financial burden placed on their taxpayers was excessive and unfair, they shouted. And the fact that such migrants were entering their states unvetted posed a serious threat to the health and security of their communities, they complained. But government officials elsewhere in the country, particularly in our federal government and in blue cities such as New York and Washington D.C., dismissed the pleas from governors such as Greg Abbott in Texas and Doug Ducey in Arizona.

Recruiting among the nation’s military branches is at historically low numbers as COVID, woke leaders and an anti-military culture are keeping young people away. President Biden’s debacle in Afghanistan is also sure to be on the minds of those thinking of joining up, with some wondering, “if the Commander-in-Chief won’t stand behind the military, who will?” The Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve, meanwhile, in early July barred 57,000 troops from their duties and cut their pay and benefits. It’s no wonder people don’t want to serve. “We are on the cusp of a military recruiting crisis,” Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) told Politico, citing Covid, obesity among would-be recruits,

Since the outcome of the 2020 presidential election became clear, there has been widespread speculation that there would be an epic electoral rematch in 2024, with the combatants being an incumbent Joe Biden versus Donald Trump attempting to channel his inner Grover Cleveland. Yet the closer we get to our next quadrennial exercise of choosing our commander-in-chief, the more likely it appears that we may indeed see a presidential election rematch, but with a ballot matching the ones with which we cast votes in 2016, not in 2020. Hillary Clinton’s flirtations with another candidacy are becoming increasingly clear and undeniable.

I have to hand it to the Jan. 6 Committee. They’ve already proven what hacks they are, yet they just keep digging that hole deeper for themselves and in so doing, they keep revealing how empty their case is. Let’s be frank — the whole point of the Jan. 6 effort is to try to do all they can to take down Donald Trump, because they’re afraid he’ll run again and win in 2024. So, if they wanted to be honest about it, what they’re doing is an effort to “interfere” in the 2024 election ahead of time.

In case you missed it, or as we might say via text or on social media ICYMI, California Governor Gavin Newsom recently tried his hand at damage control. As you may recall, over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, Newsom ran TV ads in Florida bad-mouthing the policies of the Sunshine State’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis. One ad began with, “It’s Independence Day, so let’s talk about what’s going on in America.” From there, the ad went on to promote Newsom’s approach to (chuckle) freedom. Thanks to a recent admission by Newsom, we now know his alleged reason for running the ads, a marketing campaign

If Rep. Liz Cheney were trying to prove she’s the worst GOP politician in decades, what would she be doing differently? The Wyoming congresswoman, who is about to get blown out in her primary by Harriet Hageman, locked arms with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the 2020 election to spearhead the January 6th committee. What has followed is an exercise in partisan insanity, with proclamations of a “seven-step plan” by Trump to overthrow the government being met with no evidence at all. All the while, Cheney continues to tease bombshells that are supposedly so important that she can wait to reveal them just prior to the mid-terms.
