Newsday’s memo to the newsroom

The editor of the Long Island (N.Y.) daily, John Mancini, sent this:

Our viability depends on being Long Island’s preeminent provider of news and information, on platforms existing and yet to be imagined. Our resources need to be centered completely on local coverage in all of its aspects: news, business, sports, features, health and watchdog enterprise. Describing and explaining how the world beyond the Island affects our readers is a cornerstone of that foundation. (Full text at Gawker.)

Somebody ought to publish a book of these memos, eh? Include the one from the Miami Herald (from one year ago) and the one from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (a month ago) too.
