Speaking of this cartoon, here is an honest bird who keeps saying "Truth, bring me some truth". The bird is not going to take it anymore. The bird wants The NY Times out of his cage. Can you blame the poor bird?
It appears that the voice of the angry left (aka The NY Times) is having some economic difficulties.
See The War Zone Within the New York Times Company by Rosslyn Smith:
"The New York Times Company is reeling, as bad news for both shareholders and employees accumulates.
Cash is being pulled out of production facilities and being funneled, by the hundreds of millions of dollars, into a lavish new billion dollar headquarters building, which will house a news staff that will have five percent less space at its disposal when the paper downsizes its metropolitan edition, as was announced yesterday.
The stock market certainly doesn’t seem to think much of it the Times decision to shrink the paper and lay off production workers.
The stock closed down 2.2% on trading of 2.5 million shares (compared to a 977,000 share daily average)."
See All the Times that's fit to sell by By Paul R. La Monica, CNNMoney.com senior writer:
"Let's face it, Wall Street is not overly confident about the company's growth prospects. Sure, the entire newspaper industry has taken a tumble due to concerns about how more and more readers (and advertisers) are shunning ink for online publications.
But shares of the New York Times (Charts) have underperformed its peers, falling 11.5 percent this year and 27 percent in the past 12 months, compared to a 3.5 percent drop in 2006 for the S&P Publishing index and 8 percent decline during the past 12 months."
