    Rumors the desk is moving to Austin and the paper will be printed by the Tulsa World. Anybody heard anything?

    "Along with other manufacturing changes, a total of 65 full-time and 65 part-time positions will be eliminated."

    That's a lot of people for just the press. I'm guessing the desk is gone too.

    I assume the Austin part would be about GateHouse?

    Fuck that company.

    And of course, the deadlines just got earlier, too:

    Except most of the people still subscribing to the paper don't want to get their news that way. Is it that hard to figure out?

    GateHouse does not own the Oklahoman. But it does provide desk services in Austin to outside companies for a fee. GateHouse also whores out its presses in similar fashion.

    That's what I was referring to. Fuck GateHouse.

    I can confirm the copy desk and design move to the Austin Gatehouse shop. Sad to see this. Lots of friends in OKC.

    Any newspaper that outsources copy-editing and design to GateHouse with the idea of saving money will discover that you get what you pay for.

    Oklahoman has to be the biggest paper being done out of Austin. I'd love to see reader feedback when they can't get a Thunder game into the section because it ran too late.

    The Oklahoman "leadership team" crashed the newspaper into a bridge abutment, and now they're trying to get readers to believe that it was a good idea.
