Scotty, I Need More Slideshows!

Lucia Moses reporting on alleged remarks by Steve Hills, the president and gm of the Washington Post:

Hills was said to have shocked with remarks that awards “don’t matter,” urged more traffic-driving slideshows over original Post photos, and compared the Post to Ohio’s Dayton Daily News, a paper with one-fifth the circulation of the 508,000-circ Post.

You know what’s going to be funny, and by funny I mean funny: when advertisers realize pageviews don’t mean shit and that big media has been over inflating them for years with stupid shit like slideshows. At least I will be laughing.
