Zell Brandishes the Ax - Again

With a whack-whack here and a whack-whack there, the LA Times is losing another 75 editorial positions, according to a story in Editor & Publisher. And that probably begins another round of layoffs to be completed in the fourth quarter. It's big possibility that other newspapers will get their turn. The fourth quarter is shaping up to be brutal.

Things have turned e chilly at the LA Times, and not just because of the staff cuts. Seems that top editors are spending a lot of time trying to figure out who writes Tell Zell. com, according to LA Observed. That explains why there hasn't been a new post on Tell Zell since September 19.

There's nothing like the defenders of free speech clamping down on free speech. We have known for a while now that newspapers believe free speech applies only to them, because they are "special."

Looks like they've already yanked offline. I just tried it and the link is dead.

Tellzell still works form me. Even from behind Tribune's firewall.
