The Plain Dealer newspaper in Cleveland has been reduced as an organization to little more than the name atop its front page after owners laid off 10 of its remaining 14 union journalists. The bulk of the stories and photographs that will be published in the newspaper established in the 1840s will come from the roughly 70 journalists working for the non-unionized news site. The newspaper and the website are both owned by New York-based Advance Publications Inc. A message seeking comment was left Saturday with an Advance spokesperson. The reduction follows the layoffs of 18 union journalists and four managers last week. The remaining reporters and photographers were told they would be covering five outlying counties and were no longer permitted to write about Cleveland, Cuyahoga County or the state of Ohio. Ten of the remaining 14 Newspaper Guild members, unhappy with the change in assignments, asked management Wednesday to lay them off. Their requests were accepted Friday.
