Newspaper job losses and humor

Romensko reports that the Boston Globe may cut up to 50 newsroom jobs. This follows yesterday’s Gannett announcement of employees taking a week without pay and massive layoffs at Gannett, among others, last year.

If you want to see the mounting tally of cuts at U.S. newspapers, check out papercuts. The site is depressing, but reality is reality. If you need a chuckle after the bad news, papercuts links to Overheard in the Newsroom, where users post random things they’ve heard at work.
