SF Chronicle Gets Plenty of Applications for Buyouts

The paper says it will now cut close to 150 jobs and they got almost that many people that want cut from the paper.

So that’s nice. Right?

E&P reports:

At least 120 San Francisco Chronicle staffers have submitted applications for the newspaper’s latest buyout offer, according to the local Newspaper Guild unit. The deadline for such submissions was Tuesday.
