So many posters on here are clueless. A company losing an estimated 70 million dollars a year could not sustain anything at the alleged level of losses. A company right-sizing and getting back to its core products is what happens every day in the business world. By all accounts, the last round of changes represent the completion of the strategic plan. It is reported nearly all annual losses have been erased. Poke fun at Bertetto and her team all you'd like, but if they hadn't made these changes the Trib would be gone completely. Along with all the jobs that still remain.

I'd see the cluelessness as on your end. Scaife flushed away tens of millions a year on a subpar publication and relied on deep discounts and hypermarketing to create an impression of growth and success, a pricey parlor trick.

Now, reality has set in and Team Jennifer is trying to recover from all this by divesting, laying off, buying out and downsizing, a strategy of reduction, of doing less with less, offering lousy coverage and not as much of it. In the universe of Trib Total Bertetto, there are fewer lousy journalists, but also fewer good ones. Pittsburgh will be online. Greensburg and VND will be in print, though neither are worth the paper they are still printed on.

The quality of the new, diminished Trib is no better than it was when Dick was at the controls and flinging around his millions for his own amusement. That won't change. Why? Because the Jen gang doesn't know how to improve it and most importantly, doesn't care.

You are right. Clearly hiring a few 'great journalists' was the solution. Get a clue. What do you think is going to happen to the PG when their faltering cable company can no longer subsidize their 30 million dollar a year loss? It's coming. Maybe you should call them with you gem of a tip now since it is to late for the Trib.
