Mary Beth Schneider on Twitter

Dateline: Mon 11 Aug 2014

The former political reporter for the Indy Star, Mary Beth Schneider, is reporting managers being hacked from 24 to 16, copy editors from 12 to zero, photo staff from 11 to 6, video editing, from 1 to zero, and reporters being increased from 51 to 57.

Plus some nebulous category called "producers" are going from 15 to 22. Can anyone define producers?

Obviously the Star is going to rely on reporters more for taking pix and being their own copy editors as well as managers.

Also, those who volunteer to leave (assuming their jobs are tapped) are being promised severance packages.

People are gagging over M.E. Jeff Taylor's glossing over the situation.

But what else is new?
