Shedding no tears

The dinosaurs are dying out:

U.S. media job cuts surged 88 percent in 2006 from the previous year, a downsizing trend expected to continue this year, a survey said Thursday. The media industry slashed 17,809 jobs last year, a nearly two-fold increase from the 9,453 cuts in 2005, outplacement consultancy Challenger Gray & Christmas said.

I do so enjoy watching the continued implosion of the mainstream media. Long may it continue, until they become as irrelevant as they deserve to be.
