Salon.com Is Done With This ‘Online Magazine’ Crap

By

Let’s parse this Salon.com statement from CEO Richard Gingras regarding the firing of six of his staffers and a general reorganization of his site. Emphasis ours:

We are moving away from a very traditional magazine production model and becoming more of a true Web publication, with a more direct publishing system. Moving forward, we are investing most in the writers and creative participants who can help us continue to attract the smart, discerning readers attracted to Salon … The financial changes emphasize what we do best — publish sharp, fast takes on the important events in the world, as well as the in-depth stories, reviews and blogs that readers come to us for — and will also allow us room to grow. Salon has always been about great writing from great writers. That will continue.


Translation: We’re becoming an old-school blog, okay?
