Big shock…and a sense of impending doom. Just caught a news flash on KCBS/San Francisco that the publisher of the San Jose Mercury News is offering a buy-out to all 1,100 employees of that paper, the Oakland Tribune and more than a dozen other papers. Read about it here.

This site has more…the actual announcement to employees from President/Publisher John Armstrong.

Many members of SFBAPPA work at these papers. Some of the brightest and best…folks who lead the way into video for the Internet. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for all of them…
