Gutting at Gannett

Gannett has begun its year-end purge, with the goal of cutting 3,000 employees from its newspapers across the country. The cuts were expected, but the results no less brutal. Gannett Blog is tracking the carnage.

Paul Obergjuerge, now in Hong Kong, criticizes the company he once worked for for making obscene profits in good times, failing to invest in its papers, and then resorting to the slash and burn on the downside.

No offense, but being laid off apparently hasn't hurt Obergjuerge that much. More people read him now than ever did before, though he still doesn't say anything new.
