Bail faster and keep a good thought

You know the manager of your sports club is in trouble when he gets a vote of confidence from team ownership. “We are full committed to stand behind Coach X,” is often code for “please send your resume care of….”

I’m not saying this is necessarily the case in this story about USA Today and its sluping circulation, but I don’t know if I would make any long term ourchases at this point.

A lot of it is psychological: Management wants to keep its work force as calm as possible. Distraught workers make for a poor product. Contented cows give better milk. Sorry, bad anaology.

  • A reluctant welcome

    It’s no secret what’s going on the field of print journalism. It’s going into the crapper. I wonder if Mr. Internet realized this would happen when he invented the World Wide Web. Regardless, the situation is here and we’re stuck with it. The purpose of this blog is to blow off a little steam, and I invite my fellow ink-stained wretches to join in with their own tales of woe or triumph. Maybe this will turn into a nice little support network. Questions? Suggestions? E-mail me at worriedjournalist(at) gmail(dot)com.
