NY Times Discussing Cuts to Its Paris Bureau

Mauvaises nouvelles pour les nouvelles.

Another day, another New York Post report on New York Times layoffs. According to the Post, the Times is discussing cuts at its Paris bureau, which currently houses about 50 staffers.

A source told the Post that Times staffers are worried the Paris bureau is getting shut down for good.

“They [the Times] have been moving people to London. The social charges are a lot cheaper. They are very high here. People are worried this announcement is going to be the worst one. People are worried they are going to close it.”

This report comes one day after the Post claimed the Times would cut hundreds by the end of the year. Times executive editor Dean Baquet didn’t appreciate that account and shot back that the story was “totally made up.”
