From the News & Observer :
The News & Observer will eliminate about 20 jobs in the latest cost-cutting effort by the Raleigh-based media company.
The staff reductions announced today will affect most areas of the company, including the newsroom. Some employees will have the opportunity to accept voluntary severance packages, but a few positions will be eliminated through layoffs.
When there are no watchdogs the people and organizations fighting for the voiceless always lose.
