The less sinister reason may be that they’ve gotten rid of most of their reporters, with most of the news being pulled from the wires with some local ‘reporting’ coming from local press releases.

It’s the Tampa Trib. I would say it’s a mix of liberal ideology with a large helping of old fashioned incompetence. The Trib has both in quantity.

The TT has prided itself on being a “local” newspaper and its identity has been self-described as the source for “local” news. And it still has plenty of reporters to enable it to do this. No, something else is going on.

lack of reporters may be the cause. mine-Houston Chronicle- has been bleeding for a few years now. Sometimes they wont say either, you just notice an absence of byline names you were familiar with.

They also replace some of their writer features with
national content. (contract out). The food section went national a few years
ago and no longer do you see ‘southern bent ‘ cooking by
the replaced local writer.

Right, and it’s the downside of the death of newspapers that everyone cheers about.
