    The Chronicle is reorganizing its employee base in all divisions around a reduction in force of at least 10 percent.

    I haven't heard if this affects other Hearst properties as well, but the Chron used to be an OK product that just printed money.

    Most Hearst properties have already gone through a round or two of layoffs. From what I understand, the Chron and the San Antonio paper are still printing money. But the SF Chron, the flagship, is an albatross.

    EDIT: In retrospect, "printing money" is probably a little strong. "Making a little money" might be more accurate.

    Goodness. I know some people down there. Hope they survive. Just good-hearted, tremendous individuals.
