Trimming paper to trim costs

Ed Padgett at the LA Times Pressmens' blog reported yesterday that the Los Angeles Times will once again trim the width of the paper to cut costs:
As the Los Angeles Times continues to seek ways to remain in the black the newspaper will trim an additional four inches from the width of the newspaper. Readers will note a one-inch reduction in the width of the newspaper immediately, which will save the newspaper millions of dollars from the expense of producing the newspaper in saved newsprint costs.

Any further reduction in newsprint width down the road may result in the Los Angeles Times reverting to the tabloid format.
