Journalist begs Gannett to sell The Tennessean

Steve Cavendish, who just left City Paper for Scene, begs Gannett to sell The (Nashville) Tennessean, where he says "cuts have so destroyed morale" that people who haven't been laid off are quitting.

Sell the paper to someone else. Sell it to someone who will take a longer view than three months. Sell it to someone who recognizes that innovations are going to have to come faster than updating your website every five years, or be better than handing iPhones to your staff and telling them to shoot video, or be less insulting than "webcasts" with production values so low they look like an SNL sketch.
