Los Angeles And San Francisco Losing The Onion

oni.jpgGawker has the unfortunate news:

An Onion staffer whispers to us that the humor publication has already laid off editorial and sales staff for its Los Angeles and San Francisco print editions, which will, said the staffer, cease publication.

[Tuesday’s] editions of The Onion are said to be the last ones for those markets. Some management will be retained there, as will the just-launched local “Decider” websites, our tipster said.
