The Walker Agenda Is Still Working! Part CXCIV

Scott Walker has had help from the corporate media to push his agenda from the get go.  Sometimes that help is a little more direct than others.

Gannett announced that they were laying off 31 employees from their papers around the state.  One of the biggest blows is the editorial cartoonist, Joe Heller:
A new round of job cuts by the Gannett Co. Inc. includes 31 layoffs at newspapers in Wisconsin, the unofficial Gannett Blog is reporting.

Nine positions are being eliminated at The Post-Crescent in Appleton and seven at the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Among those cut was longtime Press-Gazette editorial cartoonist Joe Heller, sources said.

The layoffs include both journalists and non-newsroom employees.
This isn't just a blow for the 31 people losing their jobs or to the economy. It also means that the voice of truth gets a little quieter as the corporate media continues to tighten down on those who would report the truth, much less oppose their scheming.

It should also be noted that when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel did the same thing, the quality of their news - and their circulation numbers - dropped like rocks.
