We’re nearly half way through the year and according to the always vigilant Erica Smith we’ve only lost 1,911 newspaper jobs so far. Compare that to 2009 where we lost 14,783 jobs and 2008 where 15,992 jobs were cut. A vast improvement.
Could these numbers be right? Are we really on the other side of The Purging? We asked Smith if the numbers were up to date. “Maybe there’s no one left to lay off?” She offered.
