Birth of Advocate New Orleans Edition, Publisher David Manship Q and A
Written by 

Advocate-1st-N.O.On September 24, 2012, the Baton Rouge Advocate gave birth to the Advocate New Orleans Edition at a news conference at RockNBowl.

The paper, which has been known as the Morning Advocate has moved into New Orleans after the Times Picayune has opted to reduce its paper edition to three times per week in favor of a digital  product.

 

The Advocate will now become the only daily print newspaper in New Orleans.

The Advocate was announced to the New Orleans media by community business leaders, Greg Rusovich of Greater New Orleans Inc. and Suzanne Mestayer of the Business Council.

The publisher David Manship and its executive editor Carl Redman spoke to the media about the reasons for their entering into the New Orleans market.  Sarah Pagones, formerly of the New Orleans Times Picayune will head up the Advocate New Orleans edition as its burea editor.

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.
