As part of the newspaper’s reduction of 100 newsroom jobs, The New York Times is examining its 70+ blogs and looking for verticals where they can do some “pruning.”

“If we find instances where a blog or a vertical is consuming considerable effort and expense with little reward, we’re prepared to do some pruning,” executive editor Bill Keller [pictured] told newsroom employees recently.

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal is planning a separate New York edition, with a $15 million budget. “The Journal is creating a section that will cover local politics, culture, news and sports. For the time being, the section’s launch is set for April. It is expected to run six days a week,” reports The Observer.
