John Georges, who took over a small family company and transformed it into a billion-dollar business, completed a deal Tuesday to buy The Advocate, the largest daily newspaper in Louisiana.I guess this helps put the TPStreets fiasco in context. NOLA Media Group must have figured they had to do something to compete with Georges' apparent plan to expand The Advocate's presence in New Orleans. Maybe that's not so bad since that means putting more of the former T-P staff back to work. But it also means they're all working for John Georges. Good for them. Probably not so good for us.
Will be fun, though.
