Hartford Courant Slashes 100 Jobs

Breaking News! The news is...breaking.

The Hartford Courant, our "country's oldest newspaper in continuous publication," announced today its plan to eliminate about 100 jobs this week - an action prompted by "local business conditions...rather than bankruptcy," according to Stephen D. Carver, publisher and chief executive officer.

Media insiders have more to say on the matter, but any way you slice it, the future's looking mighty grim for print media.
