NY Times 'bracing for bloodbath,' columnist says
NO, not THAT kind, but it seems that the newspaper world is being hit by Bush's "NOT A RECESSION."
"The New York Times newsroom is bracing for a bloodbath in the next 10 days."
So says NY Post columnist Keith Kelly.
The word from inside is that approximately 50 unionized journalists have accepted the buyout proposal, and only another 20 non-union editorial employees have gotten on board.
That means the ax could fall on as many as 30 editorial people in the company's first-ever mass firing of journalists in its 156-year history.
