Priorities

From DashThirtyDash, the Times-Picayune Employee & Contractor Assistance Fund, comes an amazing — but depressing — email from a Times-Picayune/nola.com reporter. This is what a new, enhanced digital focus looks like:

I am on the streets talking to a murder victim’s family and friends while his body is being loaded into a coroner’s van after my shift because we don’t have a Saturday night person – apparently we aren’t hiring one. Then I find out there was also a murder-suicide.

I go to nola.com this morning so I know what I need to follow up on today and neither story are anywhere to be found on the home page…

Then I get criticized by nola.com – a group of people who still have all their jobs despite our despised website – because a 4th of July story I pitched, wrote, and blogged is in the holiday blog, which apparently is only for certain holidays.

But as we’ve been told over and over again, we should question everything but their commitment.
