I’ve got a little list

Death of the Media

The NYTimes is trying to cut costs, and so of course they are hitting the newsroom. You know, the people who create the content (“Product”) that their customers actually pay to read:

“Aiming to cut costs in an increasingly troubled advertising environment, The New York Times announced on Monday morning that it would offer buyout packages to newsroom employees. While the primary goal of the buyout program is to trim managers and other nonunion employees from its books, the company is offering employees represented by the Newspaper Guild the chance to volunteer for buyout packages as well.”

I can only respond with three little words: Brooks, Friedman, Douthat.
