More Tribune Employees Join Chicago News Cooperative

295628-16100450.jpgBetween all the layoffs at Conde Nast and The New York Times, you’d think that a journalist who still has a job would hold tight for dear life. Well, as we learned last week with ex-Tribune Co. employees starting The Chicago News Cooperative and selling their content to Tribune competitor, New York Times Co., sometimes leaving a job can be good for your career.

Now James O’Shea‘s new project has attracted another Chicago Tribune writer, famed columnist David Greising, who will be leaving Sam Zell‘s publishing nightmare for more cooperative pastures.

Greising was the Tribune‘s chief business correspondent, so it’s hard not to take his departure as a microcosm of Tribune Co.’s quickly decaying structure. Greising will be joining former Tribune managing editor James Warren and former Tribune editor Ann Marie Lipinski.

Things Left Unsaid?: The New Yorker Profiles Arianna Huffington

081013_r17787_p465.jpgFor the past few weeks rumors have abounded that The New Yorker was preparing a “hit piece” on Arianna Huffington. Since the term “hit piece” is not something we normally associate with The New Yorker we had our suspicions as to how hard-hitting it was actually going to be. Still, word on the street was that New Yorker scribe Lauren Collins had been doing some digging, so who knew!

Well turns out all the concern (anticipation?) was unnecessary. Collin’s profile is a mostly flattering one (Huffington is “one of the Anglophone world’s most nimble and ubiquitous communicators”), revealing very little about the woman behind the online media empire (full disclosure: we worked at HuffPo for a short time and continue to make intermittent appearances). So, the question on everyone’s mind now appears to be, were there perhaps some things that Collins missed (like, is it strange there’s no mention of Huffington Post CEO Betsy Morgan)?

James Warren Moves ‘On Magazines’ Column to HuffPo

2005-10-11-MSNBCHBWarren.jpgHuffPo has announced that James Warren, the former Managing Editor of the Chicago Tribune will be moving his “On Magazines column to the Huffington Post where it will appear weekly beginning October 5. Says Warren about the move:

Now, thanks to the surrogates of the Tribune’s new proprietor, and with my beloved Yankees out of the playoffs, I’ve got a little extra time. So I shall return to the fold and be reminded that, yes, despite the dumbing-down of American culture, there are armies lot of ardent, serious readers out there.

We asked HuffPo whether this meant that, unlike the vast array of bloggers currently contributing to HuffPo for free, Warren was joining as a paid contributor and were told no. Full release after the jump.
