N.O. Republicans should collect books on Coding and hand them out at their building.

#5 Learning to code is one part. Self identifying as a H1B is also necessary.

#6 They could write letters to the new editors complaining about their employment situation.

#7 When journalists scoffed at unemployed American working class and told them disdainfully to "learn to code" or die, it was a harsh truth that needed to be said. Speak truth to the powerless!

When journalists are laid off, telling them "learn to code" is a hate crime.

#8 I stopped buying the Advocate twenty years ago because I refused to subjugate myself to their bullshit. I don't really care for the Picayune either but I can't really get it out here.

I'm tempted to join Twitter just so I can tell everyone of them 'learn to code'.

#12 I looked up their readership numbers--it doesn't go back to pre-Katrina, though. Steady to about 2012, then a quick drop, then a slow decline to less than half the 2008-2011 numbers.

#13 then a slow decline to less than half the 2008-2011 numbers.

Like almost all the rest of the industry, then. Here in Cincinnati we used to have two separate newspapers. Now there is one, which also replaced the newspapers of the northern Kentucky region... after which it downsized staff again, contracted non-local reporting to USA Today, and physically shrank the paper version of the newspaper seen on newsstands. The Sunday paper now delivered to our house practically needs a magnifying glass to read.
