BR Paper Advocates for Print Daily in NOLA
On June 4, print lovers gathered in the parking lot of the Rock ‘n’ Bowl to protest the Times-Picayune’s shift from daily to digital. This morning, paper proponents again gathered at the site this morning to see the staff from the Baton Rouge Advocate announce the arrival of their own daily New Orleans newspaper. The newest competition for the NOLA Media Group will begin distributing to subscribers homes on October 1, with 2,000 New Orleans residents already signed up for daily delivery.
Saints' Bounty Bluster Whips Up as Vilma, Players Prepare to Appeal Suspensions
The four Saints players suspended by the league for their involvement in Bountygate - including current Black and Gold boys Jonanthan Vilma and Will Smith - are set to appeal their banishments on Monday. This being the NFL, however, there's plenty of hype leading up to the ruling. On Friday, Vilma's lawyer was out making the case that his client has been making all along: The NFL doesn't have evidence. Instead of tweeting about it, however, New York lawyer Peter Ginsberg took to the airwaves and pointed to actual evidence that the NFL released.
Amoss: The Times-Picayune Will Take Brett Anderson Back After Fellowship
Brett Anderson isn't getting canned after all. As the firing squad did their work at the Times-Picayune earlier this week, it was widely reported that Da Paper's much-loved and awarded food critic Brett Anderson was among the carnage. Anderson has a prestigious Nieman Fellowship lined up at Harvard next year, and, thought it was shocking to many, the leave of absence apparently didn't fit into the NOLA Media Group's plans. But, this morning, Times-Picayune editor and soon-to-be NOLA Media Group boss Jim Amoss told Da Paper Anderson will be able to retain his high-profile role in New Orleans after his year in Cambridge.
Save the Picayune Cocktails Coming to 5 New Orleans Menus
Nothing goes together quite like newspaperpeople and drinking, and this isn't lost on Times-Picayune Citizens' Group member Ralph Brennan. Starting tomorrow, all of the restaraunteur's locations will be serving Save the Picayune cocktails. Playing off The Times-Picayune staff's current plight, the special line of drinks will be uniquely named for this dire hour for the employees of this moribund media outlet, and some of the proceeds will help out Da Paper's soon-to-be-"reduced" staff.
Times-Picayune to Stop Printing Daily Newspaper, Shrink Staff
The Times-Picayune will no longer be a daily paper in the near future. According to a David Carr story on The New York Times website last night, Publisher Ashton Phelps' recently-announced retirement is set to precipitate a huge change at New Orleans' Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper of record. According to the report, which cites two newsroom sources, da Paper's publishing schedule could be cut to 2-3 days a week, and huge staff cuts are in the offing. Read the whole story here. Meanwhile, tweeting New Orleanians have already started campaigning to #SaveTheTP. Click through to see the full text of the internal memo from Publisher Ashton Phelps about the changes.
Da Paper Fuels More Than Debate
Da Paper is getting bugged, but they're not worried about Ronal Serpas or Mayor Mitch on the other end. Tulane University researchers are feeding copies of The Times-Picayune paper to microbes called TU-103. The little guys, which were discovered in Audubon Zoo animal dung, are capable of turning paper into a fuel biofuel called Butanol, biologist David Mullin tells MSNBC. Butanol is a better fuel than ethanol because its production doesn't require any gene pairings or any other kind of scientific shazam. Read the full story here.
