A Note to New Visitors (And Old)

As you may know, the magazine I have edited since 2002, Editor & Publisher, was shut down today by Nielsen in both print and Web form. We may print one more issue, or not, but will keep Web site going at half-speed until end of year. Tremendous outpouring of support and outrage today (we even made #4 as a Twitter trending topic)--so much that I haven't been able to respond to hardly any. But thanks to all and I will try to be in touch. Here's a Q & A with at CJR.

Meanwhile, I will be tweeting as much as ever and probably posting here more. Haven't done much here today, obviously, but generally do six to eight things a day, so if you are a newbie, please return tomorrow for a more usual day.

I shall keep my fingers crossed that the online version can be rescued somehow. As I was reminded today on Daily Kos, E&P was a beacon of sanity during the Bush years and it's a shame to lose that.

Good luck!

The fact that Daily Kos thinks E&P was a "beacon of sanity" during the Bush years only confirms what I have been thinking for years — that E&P had morphed into a left-wing magazine and Web site. If Mr. Mitchell wonders why it is going out of business, he need only look in the mirror.

Wow, first Radio & Records, now E&P. This is outrageous. Greg, I know you will land somewhere and I hope it's someplace where you can continue your excellent work as a media critic. Our profession needs you.

I appreciate the E&P and it's a daily site I looked at.

Joe Strub covered my layoff in February/March. I appreciated the publicity, even though it didn't save my job.

Good luck in whatever form you take in the future.
