Ex-Reg Guy Slashes San Diego Paper's Staff, Replaces with Reporter Drones
How'd you like a job that requires writing with a "low level of complexity, analysis and narrative?" No, Navel Gazing isn't hiring. The San Diego Union-Tribune, now helmed by former OC Register Vice President of Interactive Jeff Light, is.

In the same Q&A, Light described the changes he has had to make at his new newspaper as "wrenching." Sounds tough, but Light survived Booger-gate at the Register. You imagine he can survive this.
