Los Angeles Time shakeup (finally)

The Tribune Co. has finally "forced out" Los Angeles Times publisher Jeffrey Johnson finally taking charge of the paper.  David Hiller, publisher of the Chicago Tribune is expected to replace Johnson.

Press Release from Tribune
It's about time.  Johnson has reportedly refused to follow directives to lay off more useless Los Angeles Times staff.  It isn't that they are reducing journalism staff.  Tribune Co. has been whittling down the editorial staff - 200 in the last 5 years.
