“I’m Melting! I’m Melting!”

The Los Angeles Times fades to black. From the

Tribune Co.’s largest newspaper, the Los Angeles Times, plans to cut about 15% of its news staff and news pages as part of the newly private media company’s mandate to slash costs.

The Los Angeles Times, the country’s fourth-largest paper by weekday circulation, plans to eliminate about 150 positions from its editorial staff, according to a memo released Wednesday by the paper’s editor, Russ Stanton. The newsroom currently has about 840 people, a spokeswoman said. Mr. Stanton also said the number of pages published each week will be reduced by 15%.

Expect even deeper cuts ahead, with perhaps as many as 300 fewer editorial employees when the slashing is done. Very few people read anything but the Sports and calender sections. Once you drive a paper so far to the left that its news is no longer trusted, you can’t rebuild the brand, period.
