blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Dallas' Daily

Dallas' Daily

You'll have to be a pretty hard core Dallas Morning News reader to recognize these names, but here is a list of some of the folks who are taking a "voluntary buyout" by the paper in order to reduce its staff by 80 persons. It looks like the paper is being gutted. Doug Swanson (investigative reporter) Scott Burns (lead business columnist) Robert Dodge (Washington bureau chief) David McLemore (San Antonio bureau chief) Ed Bark and Manny Mendoza (both TV critics/writers) Lennox Samuels (Mexico City bureau chief) Arnold Hamilton (Oklahoma City bureau chief) Terry Blount (motorsports writer) Sue Smith (asst. managing editor/features) Philip Wuntch (film critic) Tom Huang (features editor) Alan Pusey (reporter) (Source)

DMN has been absolutely horrid for a long, long time. The closer it (and Belo) come to extinction, the better.

I know Ed Bark and Philip Wuntch! They will be missed. As for generally "missing" our "free" press nowadays--good riddance to all!!

Looks like they are gutting the DMN - except for the sports dept. I seldom read the DMN and actually prefer the Ft Forth paper on the rare occasion I check in on the locals. I prefer the electronic press available thru the net.
