It’s easy to ridicule Gannett’s latest newsroom proclamations. The company recently set itself up for satire by announcing “newsrooms of the future” — at the same time it was separating print assets from broadcast and digital ones and launching new rounds of buyouts and layoffs.

It’s harder to divorce the ideas behind the newsroom redo — many of which make some basic sense, and indeed are being used by highly regarded news startups — from Gannett’s own on-again, off-again innovation history.
