Now that San Francisco Chronicle editor Phil Bronstein has finished firing a quarter of his staff, he's ready to shake things up at his troubled paper. How's he going to do it? Why, "Journalism of Action"! Tell us more!
Bronstein, who recently finished overseeing the staff cuts that ended with the departure of about 90 people from his 400-person newsroom, met on Thursday with those who will remain and directed them to take the new approach into daily news coverage. "It is more about solutions, helping them understand what they can do about things," he said. "Yes, there are murders in Bayview, and Muni is broken down. But what can you do about it?"
If today's A1 headline ("Stay Out Of Bayview And Buy A Car") is any indication, folks at the Chronicle have already bought into this exciting new plan.
