'Borg implant'

Dateline: Thu 03 Sep 2009

An aquaintance who worked for Gannett says she was shocked when she learned that John Ketzenberger had gone to work for Gannett, by way of the Indianapolis Star.

At Ball State University, where they were friends, she said Ketzenberger was an anti-establishment sort of guy with long hair and long, deep thoughts.

So the first time she saw him when he was under Star influence, she expressed her dismay. He smiled and pointed to his bangs, lifting them up to show forehead:

"You can barely see the borg implant."

Ketzenberger will be fine, wherever he goes. The real question, as Tell the Truth already voiced, is will he be replaced?

Almost certainly, the answer is no, although biz reporter Daniel Lee will probably gain more access and perhaps more column inches now.

Good luck to John, better luck to those left behind.....

No way. Too expensive for Gannett. Have Evanoff or Lee fill in.

No, wait, I have a better idea -- have Gerry Dick replace John. Dick's media firm will pay for the exposure, like it did with WISH-TV. The station booted IBJ news capsule when Dick showed up with cash in hand. Money for Gannett, money for Shareholders. Money, money, money!

Gerry Dick is a schill for whomever pays him. Which is sad. He was a good reporter.

Look, the Biz section now, is barely noticed. The Sunday section is a journalistic joke. Give it the -30- and move on. I always favor a decent burial.

Who's going to miss it if it goes away? It hasn't been very good for quite awhile now, and those of us who seek biznews have long ago navigated to other soruces.

Just sayin'.

The Star cedes more to the IBJ.... but Ketzenberger was also a shill for Chamber politics as well. Maybe this will give him a good way to stay away from the dark side/greed politik side.
