Gannett Lays Off Journalists Across the Country

In preparation for a presumed sale, what happened today at Gannett properties across the country was an absolute tragedy — cutting the local newspapers in so many American cities to the quick. It's remarkable what a single corporation can do in a single day to damage Democracy and eliminate oversight at ALL levels of government.

Local news matters. And an awful lot of hard-working reporters who take great pride in their work woke up this morning with jobs, but are out of work tonight.
