SACRAMENTO, California — The Los Angeles Times on Tuesday laid off at least 115 people, including about a quarter of its newsroom, in a stunning second round of major layoffs in less than a year that underscored broader challenges facing the news business.

Cuts included reporters, editors and columnists, according to the union that represents the newsroom and social media posts from individual journalists. Layoffs fell disproportionately on Black, Latino and Asian employees who tend to have less seniority, the Guild said in a statement.

“Slashing a quarter of the newsroom is devastating by any measure — to our members and their families, to our morale, to the quality of our journalism, to the bond with our audience, and to the communities that depend on our work,” the Guild said.

And being unrelentingly leftist doesn't have any implications for the "bond with our audience"?

Bernard Goldberg in his book "Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News" makes the point that They (those who work in Corporate Media) Really Do Think They are Middle Of The Road. And they Bond with their readers.

Thing is They don't know any actual Republicans, let alone Trumpers. What is worse no interest in finding talking to understanding us. We're a strange exotic tribe.
