Hello IRE - The Herald Shrinks Again
Fri Jun 06, 2008
Last time the Investigative Reporters and Editors Conference was held in Miami in 1995, Miami New Times published a story called “The Incredible Shrinking Herald.” The lengthy piece, by then staff writer (and later Herald columnist) Jim DeFede, detailed closing of bureaus and numerous cutbacks at the paper.
Well guess what! IRE is back in town. Its national conference starts today at the Intercontinental Hotel.
And guess what else. The Herald is cutting back again.
