A headline double standard review

The Daily Derelict has done a little homework and put together a series of business headlines doing with layoffs, including the recent ones at Booth.

Jim, you remember how were were pressed (rightfully so) to get details like how many people were laid off, and how angry editors would get if all we could get was round numbers, because the business hadn't decided yet, or hadn't informed the employees.

Guess that's not an issue when the layoffs are on the other foot.

The suits just don't understand how this acceptance of PR language when it comes to their own business destroys what little credibility is left with Booth pubs.
