LA Times to get smaller?

    And I don't mean space cuts. Yeah, this probably saves on newsprint, but sounds like they may be going the route of Cincinnati and Portland in terms of newspaper design.

    It kills me every time I pick up the Star-Telegram how tiny it is. If you put it next to the paper from 15 years ago, it looks like a kid's toy version of a newspaper. Actually, it looks like that even without the old paper to compare it to.

    Yeah, all papers are getting smaller. But not many are switching to a tab format. I don't think readers like the tabloid for anything other than inserts. But just shrinking the paper a bit is not a big deal. You get used to it quickly ... ours has shrunk a few times, and it does look cartoonishly small next to some of our old ones, but I don't give it much of a though after a few weeks of reading it.

    Cincinnati is really sad. I hadn't seen it until I visited for a weekend and almost thought the paper was just a mini-edition for my hotel.
