Rolling the Dice at the Times-Picayune

The Nation: Rolling the Dice at the Times-Picayune:

“This is one of the dumbest decisions by any newspaper publisher ever,” states historian John Barry, a New Orleans resident, authority on the levee system and author of Rising Tide, an award-winning history of the 1927 Mississippi River flood. “The Nola.com website is one of the worst I’ve ever dealt with. By coincidence, for the last few years—because I have a personal interest in something that happens in Ann Arbor—I’ve been going to the website and it is exactly the same—awful. Frustrating, unnavigable, with a terrible search engine.”

Today, the layoffs begin at the T-P. It’s a sad day for those who appreciate honest journalism on the gulf coast, and the saddest day hasn’t even come yet.
