"It's official"

Dateline: Fri 29 Jun 2007

This just in from Jen Wagner's Taking Down Words blog, under comments re: her earlier post about today's newsroom meeting at the Star:

"It's official. 20 buyouts newspaper-wide, only "a handful" in the newsroom."

Anyhow, this is a big step for Gannett and one of its "flagship" buys -- and a sure sign that there's huge slippage at 307 N. Penn.

What bugs many of us is that the workers always take the hit; how about some new management? How about a buyout for the big bosses? Clear the decks and let the working press in....
