USA Today departure



Craig Moon, the publisher of USA Today, is leaving to pursue other opportunities at age 59. He was publisher of the Arkansas Gazette during the last red in-soaked years of Gannett's ownership of the paper.

A reader on former Gazette business editor Jim Hopkins' thoroughly unauthorized Gannett blog comments:

So, let's get this straight:

-- Moon got his butt handed to him in Little Rock and was rewarded with . . .

-- The Tennessean, where he successfully demolished the last of the Sigenthaler era for which he was rewarded with . . .

-- USAToday, where he pinched and pinched and pinched just as they were making serious headway as being a national player.

And for this, he'll retire to a life of luxury.
