Anders Gyllenhaal, Herald Executive Editor, Must Go
Indeed the letter circulated internally and signed by most of the paper's top news personnel is a clear sign of dysfunction. Why would such a group of bright people -- including a half dozen Pulitzer Prizer winners -- resort to assembling such a diatribe if the paper were working.
No, the place is broken -- which is a shame because for years it was not only the best written, but the most interesting newspaper in America. Hell, last week the Sun-Sentinel beat out the Herald in the Green Eyeshade Awards, which honor the best investigative work in 11 Southeastern states.
Gyllenhaaal worked in Miami back in the '80s, but he spent years away before returning several years ago. He doesn't get the pulse of this city. Moreover, he's aloof and not well liked in the newsroom. He is the wrong guy to run the paper at this time. So listen up McClatchy: It's time to dump Anders.
