This week in the decline of newspaper journalism

Just some of what has happened this past week in the world of newspapers…

The Tulsa World cut its newsroom by 26 people.

Layoffs at the Los Angeles Daily News and the Long Beach Press-Telegram.

The union at the Minnesota Star-Tribune rejected management’s request for concessions and a bankruptcy seems all but certain.

The Christian Science Monitor, which had already announced that it would shift to online only coverage, announced a 7-percent cut from its editorial staff.

Washington’s oldest newspaper, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, is up for sale.

And sorry kids… The Tampa Tribue is cutting its summer internship program.

If it’s any consolation, Texas Watchdog (the online news operation where I work) is seeking interns for the spring semester. (second item.)
