New Orleans Outrage, Concern Over Times Picayune Paper Outage Move
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 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

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist

  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
