Bad girl.

Because I seemingly want to make sure I never work in newspapers again, I wrote a letter to Romenesko about that Milwaukee story. Find it here.

    that was a pretty good letter!

    and regarding the possibly risky content – now I understand the origins of the ‘facial tic’ you mentioned

    damn, i love the smell of burning bridges!

    too, too bad that, according to murphy, the spirit of the journal was crushed by the spirit of the sentinel — the hearst sentinel.

    folks, back in the day, hearst was the rupert murdoch of his day.

    i bet he smiles in hell when he thinks of that.

    haven’t seen the article in question and don’t particularly care to, but a former Journal photographer who later taught at Indiana U. was one of the two guiding lights of my misspent career in tv news, so I felt compelled to run my mouth to Romenesko on that topic. let’s see if it gets onto the page.

    hmmm, two journalistic role models, one in Milwaukee and the other in Wichita. maybe that’s why I never made the big time.

    hey harry…when you say it’s too bad the spirit of the journal was crushed by the spirit of the sentinel, i can only conclude that you weren’t reading either paper from, say, 1985 until the two merged 10 years later. i worked at the sentinel, and during that decade it wasn’t “the hearst sentinel” at all. we were the redheaded stepchild of the journal company — underpaid, understaffed and underappreciated. but we were proud, we were scrappy, we covered the goddamn news, and we regularly kicked the journal’s ass.
