Star-Ledger announces layoffs of 34
employees, including 18 newsroom staff

Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Ted Sherman *

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/16/2013 10:41:01 AM

Newark — The jobs of 34 Star-Ledger employees — including nearly 10 percent of the newsroom — are being eliminated in the first large-scale layoffs in the history of the state’s largest daily newspaper, publisher Richard Vezza said this morning. Eighteen part- and full-time staffers in The Star-Ledger´s newsroom of 195 employees are expected to be laid off today, along with 16 positions in other departments. The totals include 19 full-time employees and 15 part-time positions. In a letter posted shortly after 8 a.m. today throughout the newspaper´s Newark offices, Vezza called it a difficult day,

Comments:
* and Kelly Heyboer

Publisher blames "financial pressures" (caused by the type of government they demand we have) and Superstimulus Storm Sandy ("the dog ate my homework"). Not a factor to them: no one is willing to pay for leftist, race-baiting propaganda.

Move reflects actions at other Newhouse publications around the nation. The sooner they vanish down the drain, the better.

Why bother with staff. Most of the time the news is simply written to reflect their liberal agenda with little or no attention to the actual details.

Down with the press and the media. They have no credibility anymore after they abandoned the American people. My local fish wrap subscription is in it´s last months and their crush on Obama will be rewarded with non-renewal. Everyone should do the same thing.

They needn´t worry. I am sure that Obummer will have them all on SSDI as soon as their long term unemployment pay runs out! After all, aren´t they his little soldiers in the fight for progressivism!
And with food stamps, ObummerPhones and all of the other welfare goodies, they will soon be making nearly $60,000 tax free! Why work when it pays not to work!

No need to tell you folks from elsewhere that the Star-Ledger is an extremist, leftist rag.

You have to wonder about leftard mentality. The literacy rate amongst Makers is much higher than the rate amongst Takers, yet these idiots insist on insulting them.

To help this newspaper, someone should publish the names and addresses of those still employed, as a "public service."

Jay-Z raised eyebrows at the Barclay´s Center last week when he wore a medallion symbolizing the Five Percent Nation. The Brooklyn-born rapper was sitting court-side at a Nets game on Tuesday with wife Beyonce when he was snapped wearing the controversial symbol. One of the core tenants of the Five Percent Nation - an off-shoot of the Nation of Islam - is that white people are ´wicked and inferior´ to black men. When asked by a reporter whether the medallion is meaningful to him, Jay-Z shrugged and said ´A little bit´. This isn´t the first time that the

Obamacare eclipses low-cost NJ

While the federal government was trumpeting the benefits of Obamacare to boost enrollment earlier this year, about 1,800 families in New Jersey were receiving letters telling them their children would be losing their health coverage last week. The Affordable Care Act — the federal law that mandates everyone have insurance — effectively killed FamilyCare Advantage, a low-cost option for kids in New Jersey created six years ago for parents who earned too much to qualify for Medicaid and other subsidized programs but too little to buy on a policy on their own. The state program was the first of its kind

Indianapolis, IN — A Good Samaritan who desperately tried to save a young newly wed after he was gunned down has relived his dying moments and revealed she thinks the seemingly senseless killing was a gang initiation. Devoted Catholic Nathan Trapuzzano was shot while he was out on his regular, early morning stroll just a few hundred yards from the home where he lived with his pregnant wife Jennifer - who is due to give birth to a baby girl next month. Indianapolis police have released chilling security footage of two men following the beloved 24-year-old, before one of them

A female transgender student wants an apology from a North Carolina college for being detained by a security officer and sent home for using the women’s bathroom. The 22-year-old freshman, Andraya Williams, believes she was discriminated against during a March 19 incident at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, N.C. because of her looks. The freshman said she was leaving the restroom and going to her social studies class when a female officer stopped her and requested her student ID, according to a statement released by the Transgender Law Center.

A Bergenfield day laborer, who spread fear across several Bergen County towns in the summer of 2012, was sentenced Friday to 18½ years in state prison for a spate of assaults on women, including a mother walking with her child. Alexis Sanchez-Medina, 23, a native of Honduras who was in the United States illegally, “terrorized” Englewood, Dumont and surrounding towns with attacks on four women during a two-week crime spree, said Kristin DeMarco, an assistant Bergen County prosecutor. “It’s the epitome of the stranger down a dark alley jumping out to rape a victim,” she told Superior Court

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina.

Charles Ponzi’s former home up for sale

Lexington — Something is happening to Charles Ponzi’s former estate that never happened to the famous schemer’s house-of-cards investment business: it’s getting publicly listed. For the first time, the butter-colored stucco house with the slate roof and second-story balustrades, is going on the broader real estate market, available to anyone willing to take a run at the $3.3 million asking price. All previous sales have been private. One of the biggest selling points, of course, is Ponzi’s one-time ownership — although he occupied the property for only about six weeks in 1920 before he was arrested on charges

According to investigators, as officers administered first aid and CPR on the Wilmington resident, a crowd of about 200 people formed around them. Some in the hostile crowd began to throw rocks, striking several officers, according to police.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
