    Re: DM Register-Gannett

    Thank god I got out of that business. It was fun while it lasted, but the job situations at newspapers are going to get worse before they get better.

    Re: DM Register-Gannett

    Is the person that wrote that story getting let go for being a poor writer ?

    The beginning of the article says 1000 newspaper positions are being eliminated but later on says 600 people are getting laid off.

    What about the 400 I get if I subtract 600 from 1000. Are these open positions that wont be filled ? Are these 400 getting fired instead of laid off ? Are people working 2 newspaper positions ?

    There are probably 400 "open" positions that won't get filled.

    That wouldn't suck and while they are at it, MOMS has got to be the biggest piece of fluff i've ever seen.

    Re: DM Register-Gannett

    The savings from shrinking the amount of newspaper used by the DM Register this year didn't save enough money ?

    Since the latest redesign, there is less paper than ever being delivered late to my house everyday. Both in newspaper used and the number of news stories...

    Re: DM Register-Gannett

    Poor folks Gannett has single handly ruined the DSM Register with all the cuts/outsourcing! Remember when this paper was a top 10 national newspaper with the Big Peach & Pulitzer Prized Winners/Writers...crap they don't even spell check now; shame really. Mark it down the 99 year lease is coming due and the building will be sold...look at a 2007 performance record...why layoff; except for a quick buck! Like most I hate the fact it always seems a hawk runs the sports room; but this is bad; everyone our city is loosing it's newpaper; inch by inch!
