Deadlines and dollars

Quinnipiac is offering a talk on a topic I'd love to discuss:

Assistant professor of journalism Karin Schwanbeck will screen her one-hour documentary "Deadlines and Dollars" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, in the Mancheski Executive Seminar Room in the Lender School of Business Center.

The free event is open to the public...

The documentary offers a critical examination of local TV news and how story coverage is affected more often by profit and efficiency rather than by meaningful stories with a direct impact on viewers' lives...

A question-and-answer session follows the screening.

This reminds of another story I hadn't mentioned... the NHR cost-cutting measures that included laying off Greg Hladky, their capital bureau chief. IMO, Hladky was a real asset to the NHR and to the entire state due to his investigative reporting.
