Charlie doesn't want to step on any toes. As long as he mouths the usual liberal battle cries, that's fine. But looking into the kinds of things Chris Potter routinely and fearlessly tackled? No, that's not for Charlie. So he gives a history lesson and hopes mentioning (in passing) the crisis at both papers in town will give him a break from the criticism he got on this board. The one thing he was right about: In Pittsburgh Newsweekly had run its course long before he worked there.

Potter made the move to the PG, Charlie wants the same. Doing journalism on a potential future employer, especially one that represents just about the only step up locally in his chosen field, would be professional suicide.

Well, Potter wasn't afraid to take on anything. That's the way real journalists work. Charlie is not even REMOTELY on Chris's level. Writing about problems in local businesses and industries, newspapers being a part of that, comes with the job description. Anyone lacking the guts to "do journalism on a potential future employer" at a time when major restructuring is going on at both local papers is obviously better suited for PR than journalism.

Actually, I think a CP article about the current turmoil and struggles at both papers, done right, well-sourced and fair to both sides would enhance, not damage a resume. Any reputable news organization would expect such a story and appreciate one that was well executed, even if it included accurate if unpleasant facts.
