According to a couple of independent newsroom sources, Los Angeles Times editor Russ Stanton called meetings on Wednesday to inform affected people that the design, news operations and web operations staffs would be combined into one department, along with at least some of the copy editors. The merging would take place by the end of January and lead to 10-20 layoffs, the sources say. One of the sources said there's also new talk of combining sections to save money.

On behalf of myself, I’d like to extend my middle finger to the LA Times as they undure more cuts.
They should outsource it to China. It reads like it comes from there as it is.
Good to see you again abb, I was away from FR for a while but it’s good to be back. Hope all is well.
