Posted on 07/07/2011 11:14:23 PM PDT by george76
The parent company for the Hartford Courant has announced plans to eliminate jobs in an effort to cut costs.
The newspaper cites an email from CT1 Media saying that some of the positions being eliminated include those in the newsroom as well as production and administration departments.
The paper reported late Thursday that it was not immediately clear how many positions will be cut and when that will happen.

America’s oldest continuously published newspaper, for now.
"look, maybe if we dialed back some of the ideology and editorializing in front-page news stories, eased off on the political correctness, and just reported the stories straight with none of the heavy agenda-pushing, maybe we might be able to win some of our missing readers back to the fold."
I wonder if that ever happens. Bet it doesn't, or, if it does, whoever voices the suggestion is the first to be given a pink slip.
CAn’t think of another POS newspaper that deserves to die. Yes I can but this one needs to go ASAP.
Isn’t it interesting that the very folks who laud the various government entities ability to “kick the financial can down the road some more,” find that they can’t do it themselves. Looking forward in the very near future to a liberal print media free environment with the NY Slimes at the top of my list. Wonder when Pinch Sultzberger is going to tell his trust fund siblings and the rest of his sorry family, that they are going to have to go to work because he’s pissed away all of their inheritances and Carlos Slim now owns them.
I doubt that conversation will ever happen. First of all, the liberals who run these news organizations believe in liberalism as if it’s a religion.
Secondly, they don’t see any bias or pushing of an agenda, because to them, liberalism is the natural order of things. They truly believe that anyone who isn’t on the liberal side of the issues is not thinking properly, and/or just doesn’t have all the information they need to come to liberal conclusions. They do not believe that conservative views are worthy of respect.
And, they think that they are smarter and more enlightened than most people, and feel that they are educating and enlightening people with their biased reporting.
In other words, liberalism is a mental disease.
Hmmmm.... my psycho ex-girlfriend works there...
It’s no newspaper. It’s not even a cage liner.
I’ll always remember the day I dug their box and post out of my lawn and threw it in the trash. A true joy that was.
MSM cutbacks are good news to me
Ideologically they are ALL on the same page at the nesroom, they only hire leftists like themselves
The Courant needs to take a dose of the medicine they offer for the country. Radically expand their newspaper, add dozens and dozens of new staff and then hike their prices as high as they need to in order to cover the costs.
It sucks bad to just have your job eliminated with nothing more than a last paycheck.
My wife recently started working again. She is going to interview Tim Bendzko today to kick-off the start of his music tour. Meanwhile I always have my eBay store.
Actually it is not Bendzko’s music tour alone, he is opening for Joe Cocker.
That’s pretty much what I told them when I cancelled my subscription five years ago but it was probably too late then.. There are way too many better alternatives to ancient lefttard technologies like The Hardly Current. It will eventually die and no one will notice.
biased and mediocre reporting is finally taking its toll .
Good that your wife recently started working again.
Also smart to jump out of a dying industry before it sinks even worse.
New skills are always a challange but can be fun to learn some more.
“Bet it doesn’t, or, if it does, whoever voices the suggestion is the first to be given a pink slip.”
We’re dealing with hard-core idealogues whose primary mission is to push the Marxist agenda. If a newspaper dies, so what...It’s the message, comrade, only the message that’s critical. So we’re not only seeing the bastardization of news stories, PC reporting and blatant lies, we’re also witness to the worst writing in America’s print media history. They all write like thumb-sucking brats - dull, unimaginative and with heaps of incalculable revulsion.
