Yup, there go the journalists

At The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, "Managers said the site will have an editorial staff of 20, down from more than 150." Also,
The site won't have specific reporters, editors or producers -- all staff are expected to write, edit, take photos, shoot video and produce multimedia, according to a statement from Michelle Nicolosi, who will lead the site as executive producer.
Wait a minute, sounds like my job. Hired as a writer and copyeditor, but generally not allowed to write or copyedit. Stuck doing video production all day, which I've never had much desire to do and for which I never received training. As a result, videos really not that good, but boy I've gotten fast at producing them. Want to hire me, Michelle Nicolosi?
