Bumsted for sure.

Carl Prine and Mike Wereschagin both said on social media that they were leaving. Prine's going to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Prine's seldom used Twitter account identifies him now as Military Affairs Reporter for the San Diego Union Tribune.

Prine told me that he had multiple offers 20 minutes after posting his availability on Facebook. He apparently chose the one he liked.

He wrote a sweet farewell "newsmaker" note to everyone.

Let's not forget the buyouts come before what will likely be massive layoffs. I expect half the remaining editors to be gone by the beginning of 2017 and at least a quarter of the remaining reporters.

Then why don't they just bow to the inevitable and close down? They are no longer viable. The outlying papers they might be able to unload.

The "strategy" from the second floor and the new editor, Luis Fabregas, appears to be to mitigate the unfolding disaster by retaining some of the few remaining reporters.

Private meetings were held last week and it appears as if the big winners will be Jeremy Boren, Megan Guza, Chris Togneri and similar staffers, if they stay.

Can they replace a Wereschagin, Bumsted or Prine?

I doubt that they care.

If the future of the Trib rests with those rather uninspired youngsters, it's done. They're more Upgruv and Incline types. Might as well just fold it now, i'd say. All these activities are doing is delaying the inevitable.

What do you mean they will be the big winners...
Promotions? Simply still have a job? What?

Some will be promoted. Some will have jobs. Please remember that they forced out Bumsted, Prine and others so that Guza, Tognieri and others might have a shot at staying.

You can't make it up.

Heck, I decided to stay and I never got invited to a meeting, so I'm probably out along with the rest.

You mean they're out to promote the new generation of "kiddies." Oh my.

They seem bent on making a star of Togneri, but his prose is tortured and pretentious, an update of the ancient "sob sister" style of journalism where human interest stories were written in a sentimental fashion.

If the Trib is hanging their hat on the likes of Chris, Guza, Fontaine, Cato and a few more, that's a damned shaky hat rack. BCT alumnus Fontaine as a political reporter? That's laughable!

Why don't they just fold TTM now and save everyone the agony of continuing this charade?
