Firings Continue At The LA Times: More Evidence That Print Media Is In Trouble

For the second time in less than a year-and-a-half, the editor of the Los Angeles Times has been fired over cuts ordered from on high to the operating budget.

These are hard times for newspapers, and other traditional media,as the Internet draws surfers and readers, particularly younger people not inclined to pay for, or plow through, a hard-copy newspaper.

The new media keeps on providing more choices, and while the older media has had success in merging its offerings with Internet options, the trend is favor of electronic over paper.

So the editor at the LA Times went out in a blaze of glory, proving again that everyone has a boss.

And like Dylan said, everyone's "gonna have to serve somebody."
