BODY COUNT. The Globe's Mark Jurkowitz has more today on those newsroom cutbacks at the Herald. Thirty-five bodies amounts to 25 percent of the union workforce in the Herald newsroom - and it sounds like plenty of non-union newsroom employees are going to find their heads on the chopping block as well. This is ugly, ugly stuff, and it makes you wonder what kind of a paper publisher Pat Purcell intends to put out.
Worth noting: the Herald has been pretty good about covering its own story, whether it was the libel trial earlier this year or the paper's economic woes. But nothing today - although there is this AP story on the paper's website.
