    The hits just keep on coming. Don't know about sports. So it's "some" 22 jobs huh? I'll take the over on that.

    And the McClatchey CEO said that January advertising was down 10% after being down 6.9% in the fourth quarter. More hits coming.

    Continuing trend ... for this month.

    Charlotte.
    Sacramento
    Kansas City.

    Etc.

    Nice that they held off on the cuts until the Super Bowl left town and the crunch that was put on the newsroom during the past week.
     
  4. Also Raleigh.

    Using people has become part of the journalistic creed.

    "Using people has become part of the journalistic creed."

    Drip, I think you dropped two letters at the beginning of your sentence: "Ab"

    I know I've told this story before, but there was an editor who was let go during the purge of 2008. He was re-hired by the same chain a few months later, but had to take a massive pay cut and move his family across the country on his own dime to take the job.

    Six months later, he was let go in the purge of 2009.

    Hope they had good security. I know a few folk who would've torched the place.

    I'm still surprised no former newspaper employee has shot up a paper.

    In hindsight, I was lucky to get the severance package I did.

    I know a guy who had been at a paper for 20 years who didn't get one cent of severance.

    I've typed the same thing on this board before. Going editorial would be a logical successor to going postal, given the passions involved and the crushed dreams/careers. Wrong, obviously, but understandable.
