WSJ on the downside of laying off lots of reporters

From a new post on All Things Digital, the technology blog owned by Wall Street Journal publisher Dow Jones & Co.; this is by MediaMemo blogger Peter Kafka:

Here’s an illustration of what happens when a large company full of reporters fires hundreds of its workers: They report on their own firings. That’s what’s happening at Gannett Blog, where former Gannett (GCI) employee Jim Hopkins is asking other former Gannett employees to share the details of their layoffs. Unfortunately, there are a lot of them to talk about — Hopkins, via a network of Gannett tipsters, has tallied up about 1,000 cuts just in this round alone.
