I remember Salon.
It used to be relevant, right?
Salon has laid off eight six editorial staffersor 20% of its editorial staffso that, in the words of CEO Richard Gingras, it can become "more of a true Web publication."
And they are moving into their mom's basement.

I guess the grounds for their firing were they didn’t know how to use the internet.

Isn’t Salon a penny stock or something?

The word “true” has no place in a discussion of Salon.
Salon, welcome to the internet. It’s about time you showed up for the party.

(Obama acted stupidly...and that's after knowing all the facts.)
From the names listed, it looks like 5 of the 6 fired were women. I’m curious to know the gender make up of the remaining staff.
"..the firings are pegged to an upcoming redesign and streamlining of the site's publishing system that will put Salon in a "good position to not just weather the economic storm but emerge much stronger than ever.".."
Snicker....but the cockroach analogy later was apt, especially with Joan Walsh as Managing Editor.
