It feels like death by 1,000 paper cuts.
Now the Company’s San Antonio Express-News is cutting 75 jobs in its newsroom. It feels like we’re standing on shore, watching a tidal wave heading right at us. And I am sorry, but all this talk about preserving quality with cuts this deep isn’t going to cut it. Employees don’t believe it. Readers don’t believe it. Newspapers depend on their credibility, and they shred it when they act as if everything will be fine with staffing diminished this deeply.
