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

comey sitThe GOP will likely claim that the bogus “ Assisted suicide counseling” will still be covered since Obamacare remains the law of the land. That’s good news for GOP legislators who planned on voting “yes” on its repeal. The rich, also, should be happy the old law remains because they have wounds that need tending after the mega tax breaks for them that were inserted in Trumpcare went the way of leeching. The failure to repeal, of course, is the Democrats fault. Trump said so, but he has reason to be happy, too.
