    And Poynter would be the anti-Upton Sinclair, urging the workers to keep putting the shit into the processed meat the right way. After all, you can't control the cuts, but you can keep grinding dead rats into the cold cuts.

    Last line of the story:

    And after all the focus on his "record" profits, there is that. And it allows him to continue justifying the cuts throughout his company. Don't worry that his net income rose from $982,000 to $13.1M (think about that) in the span of a single year. My god. We're losing jobs for that?

    This thread is not the first thread about cuts at a MediaNews paper. When will it end?

    Please note, that's profit FOR A QUARTER, not a year.

    Here comes Lean Dean again ...

    60 people, or one-quarter of the Mercury News newsroom, likely is going to get laid off this summer. This after 35 were cut before the end of last year.

    Again, no surprise. This is the Lean Dean M.O. Cut, cut, cut and cut some more. Everywhere he goes, this is what he does. See Southern California and how those papers are doing. And once one company starts with layoffs, everyone else will jump in.


    And that journalistic beacon, Carole Leigh Mitch Hutton tells the staff to "focus on journalism."

    Dean Singleton is a piece of crap.

    That about sums it up for me.

    I second the thought. Singleton did the same thing in New Jersey more than 20 years ago. He's an embarrassment to the profession.

    He did it 30 years ago in Texas.

    He has set the model that all publishers admire and try to emulate.

    I wonder what kind of security this man has around him and his home. You'd think he'd be a little concerned about protecting his ass, wouldn't you?

    Personally, I think Dean is a marvelous human being. ;)
