Written by 

articlesWGSO radio talk show host and columnist, Jeff Crouere and WGNO ABC26 took the controversial issue of the future of the Times Picayune and the media to the next level, that of Internet chat, as they hosted a broad-range discussion about the recent changes in the New Orleans city’s paper future. 

Crouere moderated the event featuring’s publisher and attorney Stephen Sabludowsky. 


The issues focused upon the future of the Times Picayune in the face of a changing world dominated by new technologies. Recently, that newspaper announced it would be cutting its print publication to three-times per week, laying off staff and moving more towards the digital publication with its own 

Sabludowsky fielded questions regarding the “liberalism” of the Times Picayune, the digital divide,  the domination of foreign media and other topics which are reverberating across the city and the media nation. 

Here are some of the comments made during the chat:


Comment From Vincent  (Vance)

The reason the paper is going out of buisness is obviously because not enough people are buying it. Apparently they public is fed up reading the lying times-Picayune.



Comment From Rudy D.  

Maybe for once, New Orleans is leading the way


Comment From Josie  

Is the Advocate shutting down to three days a week? So, they must have found a way to make money.



 Comment From Rev.. Louis  

Our community is going to be impacted the most because we have fewer resources and don't have as much online access.



Comment From TP Hater  

I say good riddance, the paper is too liberal and needs to be completely ended.



Comment From Josie  

It is too late for paper, the future is online

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
