  •  I foresee... Job Cuts at WSJ (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Some of the upper tier editors will quit. And Murdoch's gonna wade into the reporter pool and start swinging a bloody axe.

    Those lucky enough to stay will get double the work at reduced pay. I know this will happen because I've lived through versions of it.

    It won't necessarily be Murdoch's desire to trash the paper that will make it worse, but he'll run it into the ground by replacing the old pros with part-timers, trying to get more work out of fewer people who will have fewer resources.

    This is a true tragedy. A much-loved paper (well, except for their batshit insane op-ed board) will be slowly strangled to death right in front of our eyes.

    Every day's another chance to stick it to The Man. - dls.
