Tucson Citizen Tension in End Times for the 139-Year-Old Newspaper
Some employees at the Tucson Citizen believe a corporate handler planted by parent company Gannett has been charged with keeping unsavory news stories from being published in the paper's final days, says Gannett Blog this morning.
In the post, a tipster relates the tale of high tension as nosy journalists question their Gannett masters as to why a meeting is being held at a time so few employees were at work.
As you'll recall, the newspaper has been on life support since March 17, when an expected closing was extended on a "day-to-day basis." This can't end well.
