Gannett, Big Brother. Big Brother, Gannett.

Posted By on Fri, Mar 27, 2009 at 1:55 PM

The Gannett Blog is reporting that things keep getting weirder at the Tucson Citizen.

It appears at least one of the Corporate managers will remain on-site for the duration, my tipster says, "most likely to babysit us all while the prospective buyers are in town. If she continues to interfere with the news, there's talk of a revolt, likely the blue flu, but I think that's all big talk, considering all that severance that'd be at risk."

That has led some Citizen staff to think the manager is there to make sure nothing unflattering to Gannett appears in print during the coming -- and perhaps, final -- days. I'm told Citizen top editor Jennifer Boice today reasserted her authority over the news report; Corporate's representatives remains on site, however.

Over at Weekly World Central, we're hearing rumors that the corporate suits spiked Anne Denogean's column from today's paper, apparently because she made a Gannett reference of some sort. On today's Citizen front page, there's no column, just a picture of her with a note that her column will be back on Tuesday.

There's a bright side here: At least this is an indication that the Citizen will be PUBLISHING next Tuesday.
