Two items in Editor & Publisher:
A letter from El Nuevo Herald columnist Soren Triff in response to a recent E&P piece.
An article in which it is reported that "Clark Hoyt, former chief of Knight Ridder’s Washington D.C. bureau, has been hired by The Miami Herald/El Nuevo Herald to help the newsrooms find common ground when covering the community."
In a recent email I sent to David Landsberg, who has taken over as publisher for papers, where I congratulated him on his promotion and offered to open the lines of communication, I suggested a similar approach:
I will leave you with some advice from someone who admittedly does not work or has never worked in the newspaper business. It seems to me that there is a rift between the two papers or at the very least between ENH and the parent company. I should think that repairing that rift would go a long way towards getting the papers moving in the right direction. I understand the desire to keep the newspapers independent of each other but I think there should be some sort of liaison between the two. I have too often seen a good article in the Spanish newspaper that would go a long way toward helping non-Spanish speaking readers understand what all the fuss is about (particularly regarding Cuba).Mr. Landsberg has, to date, not replied to my email.
