Subject: The PG's upGruv

When Mark Rochester left, Kid Robbie and Beltway Dave quietly entrusted the shaky future of the PG to a personable and well-educated individual with *zero* newspaper experience before arriving here. Her resume proves as much.


Three lists now sit at the end of online stories: "Most Read," "Most Emailed" and "Most Commented," a way of letting staff know whether their work gets enough page views to validate it with management. It's amazing since her resume notes time as a "desk assistant" at the "PBS Newshour." Their website just ran this story about the havoc clickbait obessions are wreaking on troubled Canadian papers.


How someone whose main achievements at the PG were creating presentations out of the digitized photo archive and knowing her way around social media is considered qualified to hold the # 3 editorial slot is hard to figure. It's bad enough Shribman never ran a daily paper. She seems like "Block's Last Stand" before Toledo bows to the inevitable. Everybody dreads that day, and she can't prevent it.
