Former SecDef Cohen Looking To Get Into Newspaper Business

The Portland Press Herald is up with an article detailing how “About 20 full- and part-time employees of the Kennebec Journal and Morning Sentinel will be laid off this month or will leave their positions voluntarily through buyouts.” It’s another sad day for newspapers…

(Blethen Maine Newspapers include the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, MaineToday.com and the weekly Coastal Journal in Bath.)
