Where the cuts are coming from

McClatchy Watch has a running tally on the numbers of employees to be laid off at each McClatchy paper.

Not surprisingly, the Miami Herald leads the list with 250. What's not clear thus far is how many of the 250 (if any) are coming out of El Nuevo Herald.

You do not know crap. These offers are BETTER than the first ones. And whether you voluntarily leave or are laid off later, you get the same package.

See this is why bloggers are not journalists.

Bloggers know more than anonymous commenters who don't know which post they are commenting to.

But to answer your question I wrote:

The others should have taken it, I'm sure the packages offered were better than the severance they will get after being laid off.

The "I'm sure" part is a signal to discerning readers (you obviously are not one) that I am speculating, that it's my opinion. You know, opinions like the Herald columnists express all the time whether they are correct or not.

By the way this blogger knew more than 200 layoffs were coming. I posted it almost a month ago. I qualified it with the disclaimer that I had no corroboration. But my sources must be pretty good considering the amount of traffic I've been getting from Herald facilities in both Miami-Dade and Broward.
