Background on the Newspaper Situation

Many local bloggers have been following the recent announcement of cutbacks on the Inky's reporting staff. For some background on the newspaper biz generally, with some references to the Inky thrown in, read "Fault Line" in the Oct. 10 New Yorker (pp. 51-61). The story is on the Los Angeles Times but some of their top editorial staff worked at the Inky in the past and there is a mention of the newsroom cuts at not only this paper but at others. Very interesting and informative.
