Oh, that’s a shame. Maybe if the staff of the Inquirer and Daily News actually reported the news instead of their uber-liberal interpretation of it, the papers would be fiscally viable.
The staff of the two newspapers is relieved the process is over but worried about what comes next.
Inquirer columnist Dan Rubin says about the only thing he’s certain of is that the next step is going to be painful financially. Contract talks, on hold through the bankruptcy, will now proceed and the staff is expecting cuts, though newspaper guild vice president Diane Mastrill says she hopes otherwise:
“We’re hoping that the fact that they are hedge funds means they have – funds.”
I feel badly for Rubin, who has linked SYLG before and seems to be a genuinely nice guy. Most of the other writers? Not so much.
Downstairs at the Daily News, the staff is worried about staying open. Reporter Wendy Ruderman celebrated her recent Pulitzer Prize with a party last week.
If there is any justice, the next party that liberal hack Ruderman will be attending is her going away party.
