McClatchy, the owner of 29 newspapers including The Sacramento Bee, announced Thursday it lost $1.5 million in the second quarter “as the newspaper chain continued its decade-long struggle with the shift to a digitally dominated media landscape.”
Today’s edition of The Bee provides a good example of why newspapers are struggling in the era of the Internet.
I missed Donald Trump’s speech last night and was looking forward to reading a recap of his comments in today’s edition of The Bee. Instead, I get an analysis of what he said–I actually had to go online to find a news story summarizing the speech.
Do the editors of The Bee really think all their subscribers watched the speech last night, or read about it online before the paper was delivered this morning? I posed that question in an email to editor Joyce Terhaar but have yet to get a reply more than six hours after I sent it. Maybe she’s still trying to open her email.
Clueless, truly clueless editorial decision-making.
