The diminishing Scaife publishing empire continues to slowly swirl down the drain....
Trib Total Media today said it will stop publishing a print edition of its Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper Dec. 1 and will lay off 106 workers as it continues to downsize its print operations and beef up its digital products.
I've heard for many years that the Trib never made a nickel of profit, that it was propped up in large part by Dicky Scaife's trust fund money, but I'm really surprised how quickly its unraveled since little Dicky's death two years ago. Now that the sweet, sweet wingnut money is gone, the reckoning continues.
The sad part is the people who worked for the paper do not deserve this fate.
