    I know a copy editor who had been there a year and just left for a bigger place about a month ago.

    Former co-worker (a reporter) said on Facebook that he survived the cuts but provided no numbers. "Sad, gut-churning day."
  4. Sadder too was that besides the layoffs, a sports copy editor who had been on leave since the spring died today of cancer. Bad, bad day ...

    Does Anastasi keep his job for the sake of "diversity"?

    Damn, could you be any more of a dick?

    People lost their jobs today. Have some respect.

    I think at some point newspapers should stop blaming the economy - from what I've heard the economy in Utah is pretty good, and the booming Texas economy didn't prevent the DMN to cut staff.
    I really doubt many newspapers kept staff on because they figured a turnaround was just around the corner. Most papers are cutting ahead of the decline to stay profitable.
