Sometimes I feel like a one-man band in my criticism of the McClatchy media monopoly that has taken over both the Charlotte Observer and the News and Observer. So it's nice to see another voice - more experienced than mine - speaking out on the sad situation.
Kirk Ross (Exile on Jones Street), has an excellent analysis of the continuing implosion of journalism in North Carolina, brought to you by the McClatchy Boys. The example he points to today is the death rattle currently being heard at the Chapel Hill News, where Ross used to work.
He knows of what he speaks.
