I hereby apologize to every boss I ever had for every time I told him or her that he or she was a cheapskate bastard. Because while that might have been true, at least they never did this:
When the Fort Worth Star-Telegram turned 100 years old last month, its bosses threw themselves — and their friends — a party at the Amon Carter Museum, named for the newspaper’s founder. Mayor Mike Moncrief got an invite. So did Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams, a TCU alum. And several of Carter’s heirs.
Conspicuously absent from the gathering, however, were most of the reporters, line editors, photographers, ad sales representatives, paper carriers, and press operators who actually put the paper out each day.
One more time, it’s the Internet, right, that’s causing all these problems in journalism?
