    Default John Perotto Fired

    http://twitter.com/jperrotto

    You have to scroll to find it in his blog. Mark Madden mentioned it as well. Pretty much a shame. Perotto usually had some inside information that was off but the guy knew some of his stuff and hell I think he's the only writer in town that has a vote on who gets into the Hall. Shame when guys like this get fired and can't write a blog but steaming piles of **** like Smizik are still employed to blog for a newspaper. ****ed up

    Sad. I thought Perrotto was actually pretty decent.

    Yeah, I mean, Perotto had a lot of miscues. some of his opinions made you scratch your head but at least Perotto had some credibility. The main thing that bothers me is seeing guys like Perotto getting fired that know something while guys like Smizik and Collier still have jobs

    Boy isn't that true. I liked Perotto too. Sometimes in the journalist business, getting fired is the same as getting blackballed, but maybe someone else picks him up.

    You'd like to think so. I think Perotto quit at the beaver county times and had moved onto some other small time rag. He needs the trib or PG to take him on

    Sadly enough I believe you're correct on that one.

    (He does indeed as he's stated before that he's liberal on who he votes for).

    This comes on the heels of Mike Prisuta getting canned at the Trib.

    What is going on?

    I think these are more about saving payroll. Newspaper are going under pretty quick and they are all looking for ways to trim costs. the problem with the newspaper industry is just like the music industry. They haven't adapted. The PG I believe became the first online source of a newspaper to charge people access to certain writers and columns and **** like that. Eventually this is how newspapers are going to go. Think about it, you can read everything online for free that you can if you ordered a newspaper. Why the heck would you order a newspaper? Eventually you'll have to order access. ESPN and SI do this for certain things, soon it'll be with everything

    I have a nice plugin for firefox called Fox Reader, it's basically an RSS reader that is actually designed nicely. Click a button, opens up a tab. I have a column on the left with all of my news feeds site. in the middle it's set up like a 2 pane e-mail. Top gives you a list of each individual article and when you click on one you see the site below. I must have 50 or so different sites. I sit down with a cofee in the morning and read and then late at night before i head to bed.... All are Free and a good number have magazines and newspapers as well

    Sadly this seems to be the fact. I mean its even happening with textbooks in the way that many are starting to be put online and print ones are becoming more expensive. I hate reading textbooks online.
