Re: “Yep, we're still here

Kathleen Yes, we've already hired a half-time reporter to help along with a couple of new summer interns fill Kate's departing shoes for the summer, and will soon begin advertising to fill that position post-summer, all of which was our staffing plan prior to the sale.

Re: “Yep, we're still here

Will the Indy be allowed to hire a reporter following Kate's (unrelated) resignation?

Why would anything change when you have one Liberal biased rag buying out another Liberal biased rag

Re: “A note from our publisher: Challenges to quality journalism are bigger than us

You were never truly independent anyways. You have advertisers. I imagine if they got ticked-off at your content, you'd change your tune real quick.

Well, get ready to do so as Lee takes you over. They just want you for that advertising. In a couple years you'll be rolled into the Missoulian and that'll be that - yet another weekly paper from Montana's history.

What was your take on this deal, Matt? Hopefully enough that in 5 or 10 years you don't regret it.

Re: “Sanders returns to offer Quist an assist

What good is this going to do?

$10 says he's coming back to Missoula, a city that's going to go for Quist anyways. That's if we even get out and vote - turnout in 2014 was 49% and in 2013 it was 41%.

I don't think it'll be that much different in 2017. We have 71,000 people in this city but nearly 40,000 of them don't vote.

Perhaps politicians should ask them way and then change their tune so those 40,000 do feel like voting.

Or Dems can just continue to lose, which is what I expect we'll see.

Re: “Yep, we're still here

Let's come back to this post in 6 months or a year and see how many of those names you mentioned are still working at the Indy.

I bet many will have been offered reduced salaries for the same amount of work and left because of it, while others simply would have been let go (fired or layed-off, whichever word you prefer).

It's the Lee way.
