Randy Turner @ The Turner Report has the scoop on two more departures from the paragraph factory, including City Hall reporter Jane Huh and political writer Tracy Swartz. The latter was especially unbeloved by many readers and dismissed as a lightweight.
Turner says N-L editors wanted to send Huh to Jefferson City to cover the General Assembly in place of Swartz -- or, as Turner calls her, "a vacuum with a byline." Yow!
The same sources say more resignations are in the offing as reporters are fed up with ill-advised Gannett corporate mandates that are geared toward the bottom line and not with publishing a professional newspaper.
