Oh, you haters of the MSM, this is just a bit of retooling. Once this last downsizing has taken place, it’ll be all sweetness and light.
You just wait and see.
How ironic is it that the ONLY bureau THEY think worth keeping is INSIDE THE BELTWAY.

They shouldn’t need that many people to quote the party line anyway.
Maybe now that the policies of Obama are hitting the talking heads they will open their eyes

Good riddance state-run media! Serves you right, when you do nothing but lie to the American people, you all deserve to lose your jobs. You can join all the dem congressmen in the unemployments lines soon.

Kind like some FReepers do.
It means they're going to fire all the people who are over 40 and making 6-figures annually, and replace them with twenty-something who will work for for Cheetos and Red Bull.
The Internet is slowly replacing the print and visual news media. The bad guys can’t control the news outlets like they could 30 years ago. That is why Jay Rockefeller and other socialist hate the Internet. Quote from Jay-
“So, I mean, it really almost makes you ask the question would it have been better had we not invented the internet and had to use paper and pencil whatever?
