Washington Times to Cut Staff

I guess it is a sign of the Times... It seems that newspapers are having trouble staying in business. It seems that the Washington Times is the latest newspaper to be forced to undergo a great downsizing in order to survive. According to the Washington Post:

"The Washington Times slashed its 170-member newsroom staff Wednesday, laying off its top editor and scores of reporters, editors and photographers at the 27-year-old newspaper.

The Sports and Metro sections will cease to exist as stand-alone entities after Friday's edition, numerous sources said, and layoffs in those sections neared 100 percent."

I hope the Times can survive, they have been one of Northern Virginia's strongest conservative voices.
