BusinessWeek makes staff cuts

Stephen Baker

I got word that something was up in an e-mail. Then I called a friend, who it turned out had just gotten fired. This is 21st century life in our branch of mass media. Twelve staffers are gone. Many of them I've known and worked with and admired since arriving at BW nearly 20 years ago. It's grim, and I don't have new analysis on the throes of mass media, at least nothing that Jeff Jarvis and Tim Porter haven't already written.

I just didn't want you to think that we were pretending the cuts hadn't happened, or that we didn't care.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
