WaPo supplies it, we just don't demand it. Price equalibrium gets adjusted downward. The market works.

I have no confidence that reducing staff will improve either the quality of their reporting or their objectivity.

Here's an idea for them - report the news, layoff the front page editorials.

Those who work with TWP know that the budget has been pretty fat for a while ( you have to see the spending to believe it), it was just a matter of time before some re-structuring happened. The bad news is that they are still quite profitable and this really doesn't amount to anything.

Washington Post: layoffs due to declining circulation
NY Times: layoffs due to declining circulation
Newsday: legal action filed because of inflated circulation numbers
LA Times: layoffs due to declining circulation
CBS News: bottom of the network slag heap
Hollywood: record-setting box-office dropoff
Air America: survives by selling blood
Al Gore TV: invisible

But there's a market out there for liberal media ...

Dear AUE!

I have a suggestion, just to show you that we Americans are not xenophobes but simply concerned about our security, we want to offer you the ownership of the Washington Post and other papers like it. New York Times? I will assure this is a done deal. Not one of us will raise an eyebrow, since these paper(s) are already as anti-American and blame-America-first, as you can find. They will probably love to be owned by your intrepid business people. Regards, A segment of the American People who appreciate your business.

The problem is technology.

With the computer, it doesn't take as many people to plagiarize as it did years back.

Sinking readership and revenue, because of biased and mediocre reporting, is finally taking its toll.
