ABC News Staggers Toward Tar Pits

The twin swindles of passing off global warming as a crisis and Barack Obama as a president may prove lethal to the decrepit dinosaur euphemistically known as the "mainstream" media. Eventually, the public was bound to get tired of being lied to by condescending left-wing apparatchiks. The latest lurch toward oblivion:

ABC News staffers got a memorandum Tuesday that promises to leave no part of the organization untouched, and will lead to massive personnel reductions by the end of 2010.
Although the memo from ABC News President David Westin specified no numbers, it was believed the goal for cutbacks is as high as one-quarter of the ABC News staff, which currently totals about 1,400.
"We will likely have substantially fewer people on staff at ABC News," Westin said in his memo.
He said personnel reductions would begin with voluntary buyouts to be offered employees in the days ahead. If the target number isn't reached, layoffs will likely follow.
"We anticipate that between now and the end of the year, ABC News will undergo a fundamental transformation that will ultimately affect every corner of the enterprise," Westin said.

Anything But Credible News will have company as it wades into the tar pits:

The drastic moves and cutbacks, which were not unexpected, echo those two years ago at NBC News, which also saved money by closing facilities in New Jersey and bringing CNBC and MSNBC staff to work at the company's Rockefeller Center headquarters.
CBS News is currently going through a round of layoffs.

But on the brighter side for the MSM, an estimated 11 moonbats tuned in to watch Keith Olbermann denounce America last night.

ABC News settles into its new La Brea headquarters.
