NY Post ^ | 1/25/13 | Keith Kelly

The deadline for New York Times newsroom managers to take voluntary buyouts came and went yesterday — without reaching the target of 30 takers.

Now, insiders are worried that involuntary cuts — layoffs — will start.

Jill Abramson, the executive editor overseeing the process, declined to comment yesterday as the deadline passed but several insiders worried that as few as a dozen raised their hands and volunteered — meaning up to 18 heads must roll.

Imagine the panic if Trump actually bought the NY Times?

Or someone like T Boone Pickens. That would be a real hoot.

1/2 of the staff would have and immediate coronary.

If it wasn't for the homeless needing something to sleep on, NYT would not have much circulation left.

How many Spell-Checkers and Grammar-Nazis do they have?

Why do they never lay off fact checkers???? That’s right, they have none.

“Great news for a Friday! “

I keep hoping I will wake up some morning and read that the Slimes has been shuttered due to bankruptcy. And Pinch has been murdered by the rest of the Sultzbergers for trashing their money pit.

The inability to criticize the President is really hurting the media business. When Clinton was around, the media focused on Gingrich as the big bad boogyman but they haven’t found any traction with the current Republicans. They have also surrendered any allusions to being non-partisan so people see no need to read the news anymore.

All the New York Times needs is one computer to receive White House press releases. And one minority woman to sit at the computer to cut and paste the text into the newspaper layout. Guess they’ll need a few minority women to run the press and drive the trucks, too. But they can be part-timers and freelancers.

Watching the NY Fishwrap’s slow, agonizing slide into well-deserved oblivion is one of my week’s most enjoyable moments.

One of which will be a taxpayer bailout for dinosaur mainstream journalism. Soon. Mark my words.

A few years ago I would have agreed with you. Not now - it's different. Obama and friends are going after the 2nd Amendment - the 1st will be next.

The MSM voluntarily decided to act like a Dem State-run operation - they could flip. That's the threat...

I am hoping The Boston Globe is right behind NYT’s slide into oblivion.

Screw those bustards. The NYT gets a chance to cut the truly stupid/lazy ones. I really look forward to the day they cut the editorial page.

They would have to get the class A shares, and those are all held by Ochs/Sulzbergs. Sure would be nice to see some of them try and dump the class A shares.
