Cuts at the Star-Ledger

There’s really no good news over here either. The Star-Ledger cut 167 jobs, including 40 newsroom positions today. Ray Long at the Chicago Tribune said, “NJ Star Ledger cuts 25% of news jobs.” Gardner Selby from the Austin American-Statesman added, “58 newsroom jobs cut in 2 waves since last year.”

The Daily Beast goes Inside the Massacre at the Newark Star-Ledger, calling it The Paper That Makes Chris Christie Squirm. Ted Mann with the Wall Street Journal made a very astute observation: “This @Olivianuzzi lede would have fit perfectly in Season 5 of the Wire. Sounds like Twig after his buyout.”
