New York Times bloodbath could include reporter jobs | New York Post

When the downsizing was first revealed in late May, a memo from Baquet and Managing Editor Joe Kahn portrayed the cuts as a "streamlining" of the editing process and indicated that some of the savings would be used to hire up to 100 more journalists.
But in a mid-June meeting with department heads, Baquet admitted that journalists could be targeted in a new round of layoffs once the editing ranks are culled.

"The Times 'restructuring' of the newsroom is really about the bottom line and not about making the editing process more efficient, as they claim."
