 From the Daily: Corporate journalism - Opinion>>Editorials   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
While the move is hailed by some as an indication of corporate newspapers more directly addressing student readers, the acquisition should raise some alarm.
As a former editor at a college daily, and a current reporter at a Gannett newspaper, I think the basic premise of this editorial is incorrect.
Besides, as a former reporter for a Gannett publication, they'd spend far less time on a college daily and more at their cash cow, USA Today.

 upstatebeat.com: David vs. Gannett
While it is true that corporate efficiencies have swelled the bottom line for shareholders, citizens of a community also have a stake in whether their hometown newspaper does a good job, but are often left holding an empty bag.
The fact that some of Gannett’s past predatory policies have been exposed through the efforts of Richard McCord and other journalists should enable advertisers to better understand what is going on, if the chain decides to employ such tactics in their community.
The reality is that a Gannett free weekly tabloid may succeed in the short term in attracting attention to itself, and in attracting advertisers drawn in by bargain-basement ad rates.

She said that "no immediate changes in operations are planned," and that Gannett needs "some time to better understand the publications." Who knows, maybe it will be a different kind of understanding than what they achieved in Neenah and Menasha, communities whose newspapers were killed after Gannett purchased them.
His company was attractive to Gannett precisely because he had built a cluster of non-dailies in a similar way in which Gannett builds clusters of dailies.

 NPR : Gannett Gives It the Old College Try
Ok, so the deal is a teeny bit more complicated than saying "Gannett bought the student-run paper." Technically, we should say "one of the newspapers that Gannett owns bought the FSU publication." In any case, Gannett executives now have the ultimate legal and financial power to change the campus newspaper any way they want.
Gannett is masterful at attempting to cross-pollinate readers from a specialty paper (Hispanic, "young reader" entertainment weekly, etc.) to its main daily product in a given market.
I'm sad for the FSU paper and sadder still for the students whom Gannett will ultimately try to convert to readers of a Gannett daily -- and fail.
