Math, Mathews and the Medium: Times-Picayune Cuts Contextualized
With the noise about the Times-Picayune cuts unlikely to die down, we got a chance to meet the new boss in the Sunday paper, and media watchers put the cuts in context. Attempting to stop the PR bloodletting that the reduced print schedule and staff cuts caused, new T-P publisher Ricky Mathews wrote a long editorial defending the changes, which appeared on the front page of Sunday's paper. Aside from the references to the Saints and enjoying the Sportsman's paradise, Mathews argues that printing seven days a week is "not possible," pointing out that Da Paper and its newsroom, along with ad revenue, have been getting smaller - just like the rest of the newspaper industry.
Meanwhile, Poynter's Rick Edmonds takes a closer look at the numbers behind that shrinkage, using industrywide models to break down the T-P cuts. He concludes that locals upset at the changes are "getting it right."
"The move only makes financial sense as the occasion for dumping many well-paid veterans and drastically slashing news investment," he writes.
In his letter, Mathews argued that the news offerings of the paper would "not diminish."
Just down the street from Advance HQ at the New York Times, the man who scooped the T-P cuts story, David Carr, grouped Da Paper's changes as one of the many signs of the newspaper industry's slide toward digital. Also among the changes: HuffPo releasing a magazine for a tablet, and the New York TImes leasing office space with beanbag chairs.
After hearing about last week's layoffs, Carr writes that he turned to fellow reporter and digital media wonk Brian Stelter and said “Well, the future you rooted for is finally here.”
Stelter replies, “I didn’t root for it, I just realized it was going to happen no matter what.”
