Tribune Columnist Criticizes Company’s Staff Cuts

The Tribune Company is getting criticized from within as Kathleen Parker of the Orlando Sentinel writes that as the parent company is trimming down the newsroom, so goes the soul of the newspaper. She also defends the value of an editorial cartoonist on the staff of a newspaper.

If only they would listen.

Parker, who usually writes from a conservative perspective, also said in her column: “Newspapers serve their communities in ways that can’t be replicated by bloggers — noble-spirited, smart, and entertaining as many often are — or by anyone else. They not only help define a given community, but also serve as both government watchdog and information conduit. They have the resources to investigate, to report, to inform as no other entity can, does, or will.”
