Another paper cut

This time, the Kitsap Sun (out of Bremerton), slicing five full-time newsroom positions.

Spokesmen point out that traffic is moving more and more to the web site; and that the web site is beginning to produce a more substantial portion of the paper’s overall revenues. (What will be the point when we should quit calling them papers?) That still doesn’t cover the fact that fewer people will be reporting and editing the news. A new business model is needed, urgently.
