A British Take On The Latest Bankruptcy by Corporate Owners of the New Haven Register

BusinessBritainBankruptcyNew Haven (New Haven, Connecticut)Journal Register Company

If you're at all interested in the fate of the New Haven Register and the people who work there and the future of journalism, you should read this piece by a columnist for Britain's Guardian newspaper.

The Register is owned by the Journal Register Company, which is now in bankruptcy for a second time, a move apparently designed to "shed" the company of some of its financial obligations. Such as pensions.

(Of course, I have a personal stake in all this. I was a New Haven Register employee for a long time, a relationship that ended several years ago during one of the newspaper's many rounds of cost-cutting.)
