'Inky' Minority Staffers Deliver Protest Letter to Publisher Tierney

Editor & Publisher, the bible of the news industry, has this item in yesterday's edition: 'Inky' Minority Staffers Deliver Protest Letter to Publisher Tierney

It's a shame that a once proud newspaper is gutting its core competency, news reporting, and it's a double shame that a critical portion of its public, the African-American community that makes up an enormous demographic in the circulation area, is taking a disproportionate hit in the jobs lost.

The best I can say is that PR people in Philly are reaching out to the ex-Inquirer newsies. The Philadelphia PRSA chapter is having a kick-off 2007 meeting January 24, and we've invited the jobseeking journos to join us for networking about communications, PR, and jobs...many will be coming...stay tuned for more insights!
