Union-Tribune cuts 112

An updated story in the San Diego Union-Tribune puts the number of workers laid off yesterday at 112 - that's fewer than the 200 estimated by PaidContent, but still quite a crowd. The paper's new owners, Platinum Equity, had already cut 192 workers in May.

The U-T story is mucked up with a lot of noise about advertising and micro-zoning initiatives, and doesn't include a breakdown for how many people were cut from the newsroom. The paper's online rival, Voice of San Diego, has reported some of those names.

Just the beginning of little eddie's reign of terror that will not end. Month after month continue to expect unrealistic expectations and continued layoffs from the master of disaster.
