Changes at the New York Times

(A Precision Guided Humor Assignment)

The New York Times has been making changes to save money. Apparently letting out secret government programs isn't as profitable as they thought it would be.

They're starting to think outside the box.... at least for a newspaper.

Main thing they're doing is messing with their departments on the content side

COPY EDITING - Outsourced to India. Considering the quality of most copy-editing by people who speak english, there should be no noticeable difference.

SPORTS - Sports bloggers. Most likely Deadspin.

NEWS - Monkeys, just to piss off FrankJ.

FEATURES - High School newspaper departments will rotate this job.

WEEKEND MAGAZINE - They're just going to toss in stuff like SI, People, and Newsweek. They were going to do Penthouse, but there were objections for some reason.

What? They wanted to do it for the articles!!!

Unfortunately, that's all I know about.
