    The floundering Daily News lost $90.4 million over the last three years — including $23.7 million of red ink in the year ended Dec. 25. Revenue last year tumbled 14.2 percent, to $144.78 million, according to a regulatory filing on Monday. Paid print Monday-to-Friday circulation slipped to 182,472 in the second quarter, according to the Alliance for Audited Media... Mort Zuckerman sold the teetering tabloid to Tronc, the owner of the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, in September for $1.
  • Faced with the need to cut costs, newspapers are divesting themselves(Truncated)

    In today’s 21st-century digital climate, newspapers are looking for creative ways to cut costs that go beyond trimming staff and cutting page sizes. Print is dead. Or so some say. In reality, the industry, like many others, is going through a massive transformation. Newspapers were once the primary — sometimes the only — form of communication and a mainstay of the community. Today, we get our news from a variety of sources, but community journalism is still here to stay. That means newspapers were (and still are) big business. But in today’s 21st-century digital climate, newspapers are looking for creative...

    Editors and reporters in the New York Times Co. newsroom can no longer keep quiet about their growing frustrations regarding the direction of the paper. After a pair of letters sent to Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Managing Editor Joseph Kahn by Times reporters and copy editors, the News Guild of New York said the New York Times editorial staff will leave the newsroom on Thursday as a demonstration of solidarity as management threatens jobs. In the copy editors’ letter to Baquet and Kahn, they say they feel betrayed and disrespected in the newsroom, and ask that management reconsider staffing...

    Using words including “betrayal,” “humiliating” and “covfefe” and suggesting that management had compared them to “dogs urinating on fire hydrants,” copy editors at the New York Times today let executive editor Dean Baquet and his heir apparent, Joseph Kahn, know exactly how they feel about taking the brunt of layoffs and buyouts as the Times expands its reporting ranks. The latest flare-up comes at a moment when the Times also is dealing with a libel lawsuit filed by former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin over a Times Op-Ed column erroneously linking her to violent attacks on public figures. In a...

    Peddling fake news does not, in fact, equate to a long-term successful business strategy, reporters for The New York Times are learning the hard way. The Gray Lady, which many in the media class consider the pinnacle of the information business, is struggling so much financially that reporters are expected to be laid off from the publication, along with many editors, the New York Post reports. “Reporters at the New York Times could soon be ‘vulnerable’ to the ax,” the Post’s Keith Kelly wrote. “If the ongoing round of voluntary buyouts being offered to editing staff does not get enough...

    Since President Donald Trump has been sworn in on Jan. 20, authorities have arrested an unprecedented number of sexual predators involved in child sex trafficking rings in the United States. This should be one of the biggest stories in the national news. Instead, the mainstream media has barely, if at all, covered any of these mass pedophile arrests. This begs the question – why?As a strong advocate for sex crime victims, I’ve been closely following the pedophile arrests since Trump took office. There have been a staggering 1,500-plus arrests in one short month; compare that to less than 400 sex...

    Baseball legend Curt Schilling has been slammed for praising a T-shirt that advocates lynching journalists. The All-Star pitcher, 49, who is a vocal Donald Trump supporter, shared a photo of the 'offensive' T-shirt on Twitter. The black top features the slogan: 'Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.' Alongside the photo, Schilling commented: 'Ok, so much awesome here...'

    The New York Times will offer voluntary buyout packages to members of the newsroom and several business departments at the end of the month, the company announced on Wednesday. In a memo, members of the executive committee, including Arthur Sulzberger Jr., the newspaper’s publisher, and Dean Baquet, its executive editor, said that the buyouts were a part of the company’s larger mandate to build a more digitally focused newsroom, and to reach its stated goal of doubling digital revenue by the year 2020. “These plans will no doubt lead to new initiatives and investments,” the memo said. “At the same...

    UPDATE 9:00 PM ET: The Washington Post has officially yanked the cartoon down, un-publishing it late Tuesday evening after this Breitbart News story. After pulling the cartoon down, the post issued this statement from editor Fred Hiatt: "It's generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it. I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree." Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate who's currently surging in polls six weeks ahead...

    The New York Times' Timothy Egan thinks popular conservative commentators such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity wrecked both the Republican Party and democracy at large. In his latest column, Egan wrote that "real reporters" have suffered a blow from both liberals and conservatives who have targeted the mainstream press as an enemy. He cited this week's incident at the University of Missouri where a communications professor attempted to block a student reporter from covering a protest in a public place. But Egan specifically took exception with the conservative media. "The true media elites are in talk radio and right-wing...
  • Bloodbath: ‘Los Angeles Times’ To Cut 10% of Staff

    While it may be impossible to believe that an upstanding newspaper like The Los Angeles Times, a trusted and beloved publication that describes half-black men as “white supremacists,” is having financial troubles, the fact is that a bloodbath involving at least 10% of newsroom staffers is underway. The Los Angeles Times staff will be reduced from 500 to around 450, and buyouts are being offered, but not really. There’s some severance and an additional amount that equals a week’s pay for every year of employment. This sounds like less of a buyout than a small incentive to avoid being laid...

    FORT HUACHUCA — After more than six decades of being a weekly publication, The Fort Huachuca Scout is not in the racks on this southern Arizona Army Post today, the day it used to come out. Its demise came about from “a lack of readership and decline in advertising,” Fort Huachuca Public Affairs Officer Angela Camara told the Herald/Review on Wednesday. The last publication of the paper, with a more than 61-year history, came out July 24, and its entire front page was headlined “FINAL ISSUE.” Camara said the post paper, “has been part of the installation’s history.” While the...

    The demise of big city print media, displayed in full by the painfully slow sale of the mammoth New York Daily News, is going nationwide as ad sales decline 50 percent and circulation plummets, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis According to their report, "The Declining Value Of U.S. Newspapers," just three different media companies in 2014 alone decided to dump more than 100 newspaper properties. Pew said the companies spun off the money-losing properties "in large part to protect their still-robust broadcast or digital divisions."

    Picking on the mainstream media is easier than offending radical feminists, and almost as much fun, but just because it’s barely a challenge doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it. We should. We must. All decent, patriotic Americans yearn for the day when the effects of emerging technologies combine with the mainstream media’s insufferable progressive cheerleading to finally destroy it. Its death throes are underway, but it won’t buy the farm overnight. The body of the mainstream media is still shambling along, wreaking havoc, long after it its brain has died. So we need to put down the mainstream media like...

    The New York Times, along with all other print-based city newspapers, is slowly going bankrupt. Specifically, Craigslist is killing them. Generally, the Web is killing them. They are all doomed. There are no exceptions. They are like mastodons caught in the tar pit. Some of them are sinking faster than others, but all of them are sinking. What is killing them is the loss of advertising revenue in print editions. That is where the money is. That is where the money has always been. To make profits, they have to sell ad space on large pieces of paper — newsprint....

    Reading this Politico item on Obama's botched handling of immigration policy, one would think Democrats are all for embracing scores of illegal immigrant children now in the U.S. for an indeterminate period of time. Obama's foes on border crisis: Democrats “They sure didn’t check with me,” said Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. “I don’t know who they checked with, but I just think it was kind of a quick reaction without really thinking about the humanitarian aspects of this.” In fact, many prominent Democrats are not only taking the Obama administration...

Mark Pryor from Arkansas featuring a couple with a southern accents questioning the confusing nature of the Affordable Care Act, Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker objected to Americans for Prosperity using people with southern accents in political ads running in Arkansas: "I think you could find someone who doesn't have a southern accent who is confused by this act," Parker said. "We always seem to find the character who seems a little countrified, who can't just fathom this. You know there there are plenty of smart...
