    wow!…..the AJC in trouble?……..

    I guess since the Peach Pundit showed up, nobody reads the paper no more.

    Shame on you Erick, causing them rich folks so much pain and worry.

    The problem with the AJC is that they don’t believe in diversity of thought and as a result readers are looking elsewhere. For example, I read this blog and several other blogs daily and though I still subscribe to the AJC, I only peruse it. Their best writer is probably Holly Crenshaw and appropriately she writes obituaries. Everytime I read a Jay Bookman column on national security or international affairs (well to be honest I’ve rarely completed a Jay Bookman column), I say to myself “you’re doing a heck of a job Bookie” because he is so completely unqualified to write about those subjects in much the same way many thought Michael Brown was unqualified to lead FEMA. Except to be fair, Michael Brown had a lot more experience in emergency management than Jay Bookman has in national security or foreign affairs.

    If the AJC were to truly embrace diversity and employ staff more in touch with the views of thier readers, say go from 95 percent Kerry voting reporters to even 70 or 80 percent, they may pick up some readers. But we know they won’t and they will continue consolidating and firing their staff until they’re gone.
