I don’t advocate any more journalists losing their jobs, certainly not after taking a buyout myself earlier this year. But the following piece of bathroom tissue masquerading as journalism is more troubling than the way the author instigated the whole mess.
How does this columnist stay employed? Seriously.
With more than 15,000 newspaper industry job cuts this year alone, including his own paper, which is scaling back home delivery to three days a week, he continues to draw a paycheck as conspicuously as he makes himself the story.
Is it unfair to question his motives? I think not.
Update: The backlash continues to mount.
