Today I read in the New York Times that the New York Daily News is cutting its news staff by half. This is a trend that keeps getting worse -- I have not worked in a newsroom in over 25 years -- a number of my colleagues who do have lost their jobs.
I just don't know what to say -- competition keeps journalism good. I would much rather read a newspaper story in a newspaper than on the web. Yeah, I'm showing my age. Journalism today is all about trending news -- not the every day ho hum coverage of a city council or a school board meeting. And if you can't read it on your phone, who gives a crap?
I hope I'm wrong....but I think it's just going to get worse.

column in today's paper regarding the public shaming of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is spot on and worth reading. I am no fan of the current administration, however that doesn't entitle me or anyone else of shaming someone in public and denying them public access to things -- in this case, dinner in a restaurant.
