Can someone explain to me how firing 100 Los Angeles Times employees, including 40 or 50 in the newsroom, will improve The Times? ("Tribune Co. to cut staff by 2%," Feb. 14.)
I am on the verge of canceling my subscription in protest of the corporate greed that motivates this nonsense. A newspaper is not a widget factory. It is an essential part of informing the citizenry in a democracy.
The new owner of The Times obviously has no understanding of this basic fact.
