The incredible shrinking newspaper.

In an effort to stop the bleeding, The Guardian is shrinking. According to Politico, the latest cost-cutting moves resulted in 268 staffers taking buyouts; 70 of which worked in the newsroom.

Some names that are departing: reporters Shiv Malik and Ed Vulliamy and Guardian mobile editor Subhajit Banerjee.

Separately, executive editor for digital Aron Pilhofer is leaving The Guardian to join Temple University as a journalism professor.
