Best of times, worst of times for New York Times and Lee Enterprises

Great journalism trumped  by budgetary woes

The New York Times wins five Pulitzer Prizes but sees its debt downgraded to junk status in the same week. The Post-Dispatch's coverage of the Kirkwood shootings also gets recognition in the Pulitzer competition. At the same time, though, parent company Lee Enterprises lays off a Suburban Journals reporter who took a bullet as he was covering the meeting where the shootings occurred. Dick Weiss talks it over with McGraw Milhaven on the McGraw Show on KTRS-AM (550).

Dick's media segment airs each Monday at 8:35 a.m.
