N.Y. Times newsroom walks out over layoffs

(MARKETWATCH) Editors and reporters in the New York Times Co. newsroom have broken their silence concerning growing frustrations regarding the direction of the paper.

Staffers at the New York Times staged a newsroom walk out on Thursday as a demonstration of solidarity as management threatens job cuts. The protest followed a pair of letters sent earlier in the week to Executive Editor Dean Baquet and Managing Editor Joseph Kahn by Times reporters and copy editors

In the copy editors’ letter to Baquet and Kahn, they say they feel betrayed and disrespected in the newsroom, and ask that management reconsider staffing cuts that are expected as the paper plans to restructure.
