Lou Grant visits the Picayune Newsroom

Not really but some unnamed wag (wags?) on the Picayune staff has posted flyers featuring commentary from the crusty but lovable fictional newsman:


Other captions include:

“How exactly do we do more with less?”

and my personal favorite:

“A 3-day-a-week newspaper in New Orleans? When did Ted Baxter become an executive at Advance Publications?”

Btw, if you’re interested in following the slow motion suicide of a 175 year old newspaper, Gambit editor Kevin Allman is all over this story like a cheap suit. I’ve never been sure what that metaphor means but I’ve always liked it or is it a simile? As long as it’s robust who gives a shit?

  1. At least my dad’s not around for this shit. A journalist in Baton Rouge for 45 years, he’d be miserable watching this slow suicide by “The Pic.”
    The “shareholders” have spoken…

  2. My favorite Lou Grant line (while interviewing Mary Richards):
    You’ve got spunk. I hate spunk.
