Singleton swings the ax in Los Angeles too

The blog LA Observed says MediaNews, headed by Dean Singleton, is cutting 22 editorial staffers at the LA Daily News which serves San Fernando Valley. Word of the layoffs came down from Editor Ron Kaye at a staff meeting. "Kaye broke down as he tried to assure reporters, editors and others that the little paper in the Valley will plug along as an alternative to the Times and put out the best paper they can. But it sounds as if the room felt that today was the end of an era and the beginning of something much different," Kevin Roderick of LA Observed wrote.
