So, the PG has the parent, Block Communications, a very profitable media company that owns the Blade, cable systems and TV stations, behind it. You really think that in a city like Pittsburgh, that could only ever support only one daily, that survivor will be the Trib? What makes you think they can diminish a product that was always mediocre at best to practically nothing, and attract enough readers and advertisers to survive? The remaining staffers, editors and reporters alike, are largely so-so or bottom of the barrel types whose work was never better than mediocre.

The new corporate leaders are bean counters on a fool's errand. Maybe you think people will accept anything. Trib cheerleaders always tend to have a "Baghdad Bob" quality about them. But even when Scaife bloated the newsroom, the Trib was never the success he claimed it to be. He gave away thousands of copies to create an illusion of growth.

Whatever happens to the PG, and its survival is by no means certain, the Jennifers at TTM are not going to do anything but delay the inevitable. If they are the only hope, it's no hope at all.
