Hold Some Meetings; Save The Courant

I was sitting at the keyboard recently and all of a sudden was stricken with an idea:

How about bunches of specially selected folks from the Courant newsroom get together — maybe behind closed doors — and come up with ways to save the paper? I think it would be best if they focused primarily on innovative ways to improve the online content in particular, since the print product may not have much of a future anyway. I think they should try to get all this done by, say, Friday, just so it doesn’t drag on.

Oh, wait. That’s already being done.

Since those talks are confidential, however, I will offer this blog as an alternative forum and outlet for innovative thinking among those of you who may not have been invited to the pow-wow but wish for the nation’s oldest continuously published newspaper to continue being so.

    Saving the Courant must start with removing the elephant in the room — otherwise known as Rich Graziano. Graziano’s total knowledge of news in general would take up less than half of the front page of the newspaper. He is not a dynamic leader…

    Tribune would not have to look far to find someone that is better qualified to lead the paper, and better yet, serve as a true community leader. Please tell Graziano it’s time to step out of the way and make room for someone to bring the Courant out of the dark ages.

    I think all we can do at this point is pray …

    Jettison the TV station. It was a failed experiment. It’s an afterthought in this market, let’s face it. Put the resources into the Courant, a product people actually spend money on, read and care about, even as Graziano tries to bury it.
