    I'm told there are/may be/will be another two dozen or so out of that news room?
    This can't be possible can it? Is anyone left?

    Is there ever anyone left? Somehow it happens. I'm not surprised by any of these "AGAIN?!" threads anymore.

    I gotta wonder, at this point, why they even bother.

    The thing that bothers me about all these little cuts is the lack of long-term planning by upper management.

    It's like they don't have a clue about any future projections, so they figure, they might as well just keep cutting jobs.

    And yet, our old friend Janet Coats is still there, overseeing the wreckage ...

    Ms. Coats: "Conditions have not changed in advertising."

    As usual, editorial bears the brunt of the whacks because the ad department couldn't sell lap dances on a troop ship.

    Seriously, there can't possibly be enough people left there to make this a viable product.

    I just love the exclamation points in the second graph. We're dumping 73 folks but let's get excited!!

    Dear Colleagues,

    Despite strong sales successes with our Yahoo Blitz and our Ad Profit program, other revenues have not rebounded as we had planned. For this reason we are reducing our staff levels throughout FCG by 85 positions, 73 positions through layoffs.

    We may not be able to control the economy but we can stay focused on creating strong products that grow audience and revenue each day!

    Your sacrifices, determination and commitment are very much appreciated during this unprecedented time.

    I prefer my exclamation points.

    Die, assholes, die!

    As I said months ago, this paper will not be printing by Christmas.

    I would love to be wrong though.
