Parent company Thomson Reuters announced in a statement it would be making reductions, but offered no figures.
A source familiar with the matter said the cuts would affect some five percent of the global staff of some 2,800.

I love reading good news.
ha, yes. I wish there was a way to boycott Reuters directly but they peddle to newspapers, not individuals. Stop buying newspapers and make them layoff more.

They’ve been re-reutered by ObamaScam. Even Bammy’s foot soldiers in the enemedia get the ax too. But dont worry—the OblahMaosCare exchanges are open for their healthscare coverage. Write on, write on, write on.

Nonessential federal pay cuts? MSNBC, CNN, to shutdown too? Hmmm?

“Stop buying newspapers and make them layoff more.”
I have not bought a paper for maybe 4 years. I get my news free on the net and subscribe to Free republic.
Would like to hear that Reuters is shutting down.
Greetings from Europe to all.

That's not sarcasm. Anyone who thinks our media isn't employed by the 0bama regime is dreaming. I'll bet Soros has cut hundreds of checks to the media king pins. Wouldn't surprise me if Stimulus funds were diverted to them as well.
$67 million missing from 0bamacare's IRS 'roll out' funds? Hmmm? Check CNN's, MSNBC's, CBS's, NBC's, or ABC's bank accounts.

Without editors, who will do the editorializing in news articles at Al Reuters?
