What do "MLive" and "experience with Georgia sports" have to do with new jobs at NOLA Media Group?

The blunders and PR disasters at The Times-Picayune keep piling up like garbage in the French Quarter on Mardi Gras.

T-P owner Advance Publications may think it doesn't need copy editors, but whomever is running the newspaper's HR operations since the entire HR team was sacked last Tuesday (along with nearly 200 other colleagues) definitely does. Three new job postings by NOLA Media Group refer to "MLive," Advance's disastrous Michigan operations, while another refers to the desirability of "past experience with Georgia sports." (Does that mean that while The Times-Picayune just cut its Washington, D.C. bureau in half, it's planning to open a Georgia bureau?)

You can find the job descriptions by keyword searching "MLive" and "George sports" on the NOLA.com's local jobs page. If someone has corrected the four ads by the time you see this, shoot an email to rebecca@rebeccatheim.com and I will forward screen grabs.
