Skip to comments.Twilight of the Clods: McClatchy VP Goes Berserk

The McClatchy publishing company is more and more beginning to resemble an isolated bunker in the final stages of Götterdämmerung as ugly reality, such as their 99% stock price plunge, closes in on both fronts. Inside the bunker a leader is screaming madly, conjuring up phantom armies to ward off the unpleasant facts facing his company. However, in this case their ranting leader in the bunker isn't McClatchy CEO Gary Pruitt who is probably already quietly contemplating his permanent exile with his surfboard off the coast of Satellite Beach but Howard Weaver (photo), the outgoing VP of News at that company.

May their fate be shared by the entire MSM.
When the McClatchy paper, Star-Telegram in Ft Worth, closes I will be in the parking lot doing the happy dance. Not saying they sold out to the left wing of the democrat party but even the sports page had nice things to say about Obama. Sad part is they are proud of their bias, not realizing that the only product they have is credibility and that is gone.
It’always high drama to watch the leftist spittle flying, the denunciations of all who betrayed them, the deranged hopeless prophecies of ultimate victory when imaginary armies of investors all converge at the McClatchy Bunker to throw buckets of 100 dollar bills at Pruitt and Weaver, oh it’s all comedy, nothing at all tragic about another left-wing mouthpiece about to go *BURP* down the toilet, LOL
lets hope their collapse will be times with democrap catastrophic incompetance so that in 2012 we can have a clean sweep.
and NO RINO’s this time (ala the Gingrich congress of 1994)
...I’ll be glad when the Charlotte Observer is silenced...their editors/reporters are right up there with Hollywood and the Academy when it comes to anti-Americanism.
What’s that I hear?
I do believe that’s Charlie Daniels playing the world’s smallest fiddle!
