Less Messenging

Some months back, local website NewOrleans.com dropped all pretense of any news, sports, and opinion content leaving only its tourism marketing core. 

Today Oyster shares a letter from Jeff Crouere (NewOrleans.com's then-political editor) that the site's decision to butt out of the news business resulted at least in part from pressure coming from former Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard.

Remember this isn't the only incidence of Broussard and pals attempting to intimidate local media outlets.  But it is the only successful one we know of.
