The Knoxville News Sentinel
has apparently decided that there is really no Silence here
This is yet another example of the declining quality of the News Sentinel and of Scripps newspapers generally. One has to wonder if the News Sentinel will suffer the same fate eventually as the Rocky Mountain News and The Cincinnati Post-which had been the very flagship of the Scripps chain. The Rocky and the Post were good papers, but if the KNS wants
to join them in their fate, cutting your best people from the staff is
not the way to insure viability. In what is likely the last post on his
blog No Silence Here, Michael Silence confirmed via the paper's online staff that the rumors of his departure were true this morning.
