In a letter to editor Mike Hoyt at the Columbia Journalism Review, Tribune Publishing’s editorial Vice President Gerould Kern slammed a recent editorial in the publication suggesting Tribune should get out of the newspaper business.

“Your editorial is misinformed, misguided and a disservice to your readers, our company and our communities,” wrote Kern, in response to the CJR piece. “Most egregious is the assertion that ‘Tribune has great resources, but those resources aren’t doing much public good.’ Nothing could be further from the truth.”

The letter, which appeared on the Romenesko media news Web site, described at length what Kern sees as Tribune’s ongoing commitment to quality journalism in the face of unfavorable market conditions and shifts in the media landscape.
