A friendly reminder to all the remaining staffers at the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Boss Moss starts Monday as CEO of R-J owner Stephens Media.
As I advised back when the heads of longtime R-J staffers were rolling like wooden balls in the Bingo tumbler: Keep your head down!
If you hear a gobbling sound, it ain’t Thanksgiving leftovers. Don’t, repeat, don’t pop your head above the cubicle wall to see what is going on. Boss Moss’ reputation precedes him. He has been publisher of two shrinking newspapers in the past four years. Mike Ferguson apparently couldn’t trim enough cost in his three years at the helm. (With Ferguson gone, might some of the people he brought in start pining for family back home?)
With the jettisoning of the albatross Sun and its expenses, one can’t help but wonder if Boss Moss is being brought in to make the books look better for a would-be buyer.
So, keep your head down and your arse covered.
