Black Thursday at the Minneapolis Star Tribune
A few photos from a large protest Star Tribune journalists/union members (my colleagues and friends) held today outside the Strib building in downtown Minneapolis. There were more tears than cheers. Fifty jobs are going away, on the heels of 24 that went away in March, and many of those left have been reassigned. It's all to expand the profit margin. Meantime, the classic American newspaper is dying, and it's heartbreaking for us old journalists.
