New Orleans Outrage, Concern Over Times Picayune Paper Outage Move
Written by  // Wednesday, 30 May 2012 10:08 //

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 Bayoubuzz.com’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 NOLA.com 

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
