Skip to comments.New York Times Offers Newsroom Buyouts; About 30 jobs will be eliminated
Posted on 12/03/2012 2:42:48 PM PST by jimbo123
The New York Times is attempting to save costs by implementing another round of newsroom staff cuts. According to a memo sent by executive editor Jill Abramson this morning, the newspaper is looking for 30 buyouts among newsroom staff. Over the next few days, Abramson wrote, certain employees will be asked to accept voluntary severance packages. (Newspaper Guild members also have the option to apply for a buyout even if theyre not among those contacted by the NYT.) If the quota isnt met through buyouts, Abramson will be forced to go to layoffs, she said.

But, but these people are suppose to keep their jobs according to the Lefties.
Of course there are layoffs . . . how many staff do you need to reprint White House press releases?
Merry Xmas, NYT.
The circle grows tighter...soon the sacred cows in the editorial department will be affected. Perhaps they might do a quality assessment and realize that Maureen Dowd has been submitting unintelligible word salads for over a decade.
Please dear God....force that idiot Paul Krugman out the door....
The severs at HP would probably crash for all the wailing and gashing of teeth
NY times need to become the Once Upon a Times.
They need to go out of business yesterday.
Thank God most of these liberals have trust funds. Its a harsh world out there as they will soon discover.
They will find a new home.
Hee! Hee! I feel like Scrooge ‘cause I’m really enjoying this.
NAV- I don’t know if you want to count these guys, heh
celebrate by finding their twitter and facebook accounts and posting the HA HA! sign
30 new bloggers for Huffington and Politicus
That is what I was thinking. 30 new parrots squawking in their mirrors.
Nothing would make me happier than to see thousands of jobs lost in the media. The ultimate revenge for gifting Obama with another term. I want to see every single Obama voter suffer the consequences of their lovefest
I hate to see anyone lose their job. But when people are just drones being feed every word to report what good are they? Nothing they write is worth reading anway.
I don’t like people losing their jobs, either. But The Times is a very dishonest paper - and I speak as one of their last subscribers!
Is it so wrong to hope this nasty paper goes out of business? If they do, I’ll switch to The Post.
Attempting to stave off the inevitable bankrptcy.
These *ssclowns apparently don’t yet know they’ve become utterly irrelevant.
Anyone involved with the NYT can be necklaced for all I care. I’d contentedly sip a beer and watch.
Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Clause.
“I want to see every single Obama voter suffer the consequences of their lovefest”
They will. Problem is, they won’t be the only ones to suffer.
Hmmmm. Anybody we know???
If they call a layoff by another name, do they still get unemployment?
They all signed up for the “Ding! Fries are done!” jobs, but Burger King has a 49 employee limit.
Why not switch to the Post now? :-)
Expect more large government ads, and official notices (we call that “gazetting” here). That’s a way for government to fund newspapers, without appearing to do so.
I would like to see every person who works for the Democrat “mainstream” newsrooms lose their jobs, their homes, and their families. For what they have done to the America I grew up in they deserve nothing less.
oh yeah, BIG time.
Back in the land of Excel and Word, will try to get the list updated for this evening's posting.
