Both are owned by Lee Enterprises. The Journals laid off 14 other employees the same day.

It’s ridiculous that we keep reading different versions of this story from around the country without seeing accompanying stories about how the 20 or 30 or (in this case) 40 laid-off people turned right around and started a blog full of the solid investigative reporting that those employees supposedly wish they could do.

Considering that there are still dozens of great former Examiner employees floating around Baltimore, if the Guild can’t step up on this one and create at least one solid nonprofit news entity, they need to seriously consider disbanding.
