OT: A Bad Day For Newspapers

Via LA Observed, it looks like there's been another round of layoffs at the Times, with 75 getting the axe this time. New blogger Veronique de Turenne and film critic Carina Chocaro are among the victims.

Further south down the I-5, the Register has taken a 15% hit in daily circulation numbers in the six months ending September 30. (The Times over the same period of time is only down 5.2% according to the linked Orange County Business Journal story.) And this is new: the Register is thinking about joining up with the Times to save money? We already know that the OC daily has been buying Dodgers coverage from the Los Angeles Newspaper Group all year, but a consolidation with the Times would be momentous indeed.
