The Times to Cut 100 News Jobs
The New York Times reports on its own plans to eliminate about 100 newsroom jobs this year. Executive Editor Bill Keller told staffers in a meeting yesterday, explaining that after years of resisting the newsroom cuts that have hit most of the industry, the paper will bow to the growing financial strain and reduce its staff. The Times has 1,332 newsroom employees, the largest number in its history; no other American newspaper has more than about 900.
