The New York Times responds to its hemorrhage of readers by shrinking its newspaper...

What! Only 5% smaller? Shouldn't The Times be at least as proportionate as they demand that Israel be? We all know their readership has gone down more than a measly 5%. How about cutting down by a reasonable 75%, leaving only the entertainment section, the stockmarket pages and the Bestseller List? That works for me...

Isn't it more than just passing telling that the three main MSM anti-Bush, anti-Iraq War, hard-left flamethrowers---The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post---are all three shrinking to cut losses due to their own self-inflicted wounds.

First went the credibility, ethics and morals of these liberal elite rags and their arrogant publishers and editors. Then went their readership and column space. No surprise there!

Soooo...., why not just whole-hog GO already?

More below and here.

"NYT to cut paper size and close plant"

The New York Times Co... plans to narrow the size of its flagship newspaper and close a printing plant, resulting in the loss of 250 jobs, the company said in a story posted on its Web site late on Monday...

The newspaper will be narrower by 1 1/2 inches. The redesign will result in the loss of 250 production jobs... The New York Times said it expected the changes to result in savings of $42 million. The narrower format, offset by some additional pages, will reduce the space the paper has for news by 5 percent...

The Times will join a list of several other papers from The Washington Post to the Los Angeles Times that have reduced their size as they cut newsprint and other production costs and try to stem a loss of readers and advertising to the Internet and other media..."
