A Little Birdy Tells Us…

Some staffers at The Washington Times are on pins and needles this morning as management has called a meeting today at 11 a.m. in the auditorium. The heightened nerves stem from a memo last month in which Executive Editor David Jackson announced there would be layoffs. Not everyone at the publication has been invited. Employees were contacted individually. Invitations to the meeting include people from the copy desk, art, national weekly edition and books.

Stay tuned…

UPDATE: We’re also hearing that sports, photo and web desk folks were also summoned to the meeting, and that managers were not informed about any of it.
