The Incredible Shrinking Los Angeles Times

For the second time in slightly more than a year the LA Times has fired its editor for objecting to newsroom budget cuts. It will be interesting to see how the next replacement deals with this phenomenon, which is likely to continue.

BTW, I don’t gloat about this. Old Media may be dying, but New Media are not yet prepared to take their place. We’d like to be… we’re trying… but we’re not there yet. A new method for the dissemination of news must be developed, however. We cannot just rely on the Associated Press, which has been shown repeatedly to be biased, often in the extreme.
