RE: INSIDE DMN

An FBvian with a better memory of the last Big Sack references this from the AJR account by Charles Layton:

On that day, the Morning News dismissed about 150 workers, including 65 in the newsroom just more than 10 percent of the paper’s journalists. The cuts included people with 20 and 30 years’ service, people held in extremely high regard by their colleagues, people who had recently won prizes and gotten pay raises and glowing performance reviews from their bosses, and then were suddenly sacked.

To clarify: the 250 buyouts/layoffs in 2004 were Belo-wide; 150 were from the DMN, and 65 were in the newsroom.
