The most incredible thing about this bankruptcy is that the Tribune Co. has news outlets in every corner of the country. This is going to affect the whole country at once.

i was at my old paper's holiday party right after the bankruptcy news came out, and our publisher gave a little statement to the tune of "business as usual, folks, BUSINESS AS USUAL." Now, he was claiming that the weekly community papers were still making and/or exceeding budget and so he thought they were immune to layoffs or buyouts. But my former coworkers aren't so convinced.
