    No, that's just wrong! It has nothing to do with that unfortunate, minor bookkeeping error.

    Newspapers everywhere HAVE to cut jobs! It's the economy!

    Of course, even if it recovers, there is still a LOT of dinero to recover from all these down years. We'll have to keep working leaner and meaner for the foreseeable future.

    As long as "we" keep tightening our belts, we can keep putting out a profitable product, even if it's somewhat lighter on news, enterprise and sports. Our readers can get all of those things on the Internet, you know. [/industryspindoctor]
  2. Compounding the problem was a series of questionable decisions by management to spend exorbitant amounts of capital on projects that blew up in their face: Arlington, Collin County, Cue cats, TXCN. Had the responsible suits not been family, they would have been shown the door. Instead, they were able to blame the rank and file for not making their bad decisions work.

    They rolled the ball out onto the court and provided the court. It's up to the players to make the system work. [/industryspindoctor]

    My advice to students wanting to get into journalism is get a business degree.

    Secondly, fuck that publisher.

    I like the fucking idea but seriously, I firmly would not recommend THIS business to anyone. We are going in the way of the telegram. We're not needed anymore.

    Well, boots, when newspapers figure out how to make money on the Net and pull their paper products (if that happens), reporters and copy editors will be needed all the same, and perhaps even more copy editors, since you're talking an infinite breaking news cycle. So journalism is still worthy to go into if it's in you. Maybe not as a designer, tho; not sure how that discipline will transfer to the Net.
