A new survey of former and present Times-Picayune employees shows that the love they once had for that institution has been irretrievably lost.

Rebecca Theim, a former Times-Picayune reporter who started the DashThirtyDash T-P Employee Assistance Fund and is writing a book about what happened to the paper, has published the results of a survey she conducted of former and present Picayune employees.

The survey, published at the Columbia Journalism Review website, is unscientific because the respondents were self-selected, but among those who responded “almost no one thought the changes had been handled well,” and “even employees who stayed believed the changes were driven by greed on the part of the Newhouse family; few believed the newspaper’s financial performance warranted such wrenching changes.”
