How to lose readers and alienate people

Remember when the Company used to talk about treating employees with fairness, kindness, dignity and respect?

It sure has been a long time.

Now comes word that Hearst in San Francisco is giving the Guild this choice: Accept our demands (which look familiar) and we’ll lay off 150. Resist and we’ll lay off 225.

Nice, huh?

And in Seattle, the Post-Intelligencer may become a Web-only operation with lots of blogs and links and little news.

We know times are tough, but we’re supposed to attract readers, not repel them.
