The Los Angeles Times is cutting 250 jobs, including 150 newsroom jobs, and reducing the number of pages published by 15 percent to deal with declining ad revenue. “The number one reason that people cancel the L.A.

Last week, six major U.S. newspapers announced a combined 900 layoffs. (AP in BusinessWeek.com)
