Posted on 01/18/2017 6:09:32 AM PST by Rockitz
The New York Times is warning its staff that budget cuts and staff reductions loom as the paper looks ahead to the future, according to a study by the outlet about how the newsroom will operate in the future.
Dean Baquet, New York Times executive editor, and Joe Kahn, managing editor, said that the outlets transformation would require budget cuts and lead to a smaller and more focused newsroom, a move that will prompt buyouts and layoffs, which are expected this year.
"We view this moment as a necessary re-positioning of The Times newsroom, not as a diminishment, they said.
The move comes after the paper ended its regional coverage of art galleries, restaurants, and theaters in the tri-state area, causing dozens of job cuts. It was a sign of things to come when the newsroom slashed more jobs in November, the Wrap reported.
Baquet and Kahn said that most of the cuts will be applied to duplicative and often low-value line editing, which will lead to reductions in the editor ranks.
Lets not be coy, they wrote. The changes will lead to fewer editors at The Times.
The Times did say, however, that it will invest $5 million toward covering President-elect Donald Trump and his administration.

Here’s hoping DJT cuts their access to him so that the Slimes’ $5M investment is wasted.
I’d like to live long enough to see the Slimers go completely down the toilet.
Be great if DJT would buy the building .. make it his national campaign HQ for 2020 !
Try reporting on the news by being out there with the American people instead of reporting from your perches inside the DNC, and maybe you might save that miserable rag!
It couldn't happen to a
nicer nastier guy.
I feel so bad.
The failing NY Times...
To quote Howard Dean on the capture of Saddam, "On the whole, that's probably a good thing."
Couldn’t happen to a higher class of toe cheese eaters.
Don’t even think that, PLEASE!!
I would then lose the TAG LINE that I’m so proud of.
I better get working on a replacement... already got a couple of ideas.
When Trump called the NYT a dying paper that probably won’t be around in another 3 years, he was blasted by the NYT and others. It sure looks like a big decline to me, it’s probably because of all the #fakenews they’ve been running with for so many years, it’s finally catching up with them.
All fake news reporters, editors and oped writers will be laid off as there is no more need for them.
The former CIA thugs and DNC losers will just write the fake news and use the former reporters names and/or say the fake news articles were written by the Editorial Board, which doesn't exist.
Jeff Bezos will do the same with the Compost.
How long before they go “Tabloid”?
Even liberals are mot reading the NYT? I thought it was their Mother Ship. If the paper dies, how will the libs know what to say and think?

The local, mostly liberal rag built a huge edifice downtown about 20 years ago, just as the Internet was becoming widely accessible. Today, the paper is produced in a small corner of that building, and the owners have struggled to lease out the rest of it.
