Shreveport Times Ditches Arts Reviews In Drive To “Improve” Arts Coverage

The editor of the Shreveport Times has some interesting ideas on how to “improve” his paper’s arts coverage: Starting immediately, “the Times will no longer do reviews of plays, symphonies, ballets and art shows. The Times will expand and improve its arts coverage during the coming year. These last two sentences are not mutually exclusive. Not running reviews does not mean The Times is cutting back on its arts coverage. We want to improve it.”
