Atlanta Journal-Constitution writer says Pride doesn’t merit coverage

2010 Atlanta Pride festival

Creative Loafing has an excellent story this week on the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s recent change in editorial tone in a bid to win over more readers. CL highlights the AJC’s move north to Dunwoody and points out, in great detail, the paper’s recent lack of coverage of the inner-city as it looks to win over more conservative OTP readers.

One section in particular emphasizes the AJC’s lack of coverage of this year’s Atlanta Pride festival that we covered back in October.

I blasted the AJC then for failing to include any mention of Atlanta Pride in the print edition. The AJC’s website did have an online photo gallery from the parade, but at only eight images, it was paltry at best.
