A Correction

A Bit Off, But Obviously Not My Fault

Earlier this week, the Canadian Press erroneously reported that the Star fired their entire Internet production staff.

But in today's Star, of all things, CP clarified the firings:

The online department layoffs do not directly affect the Star's editorial web operations, but instead dissolve a legacy operation that had existed since the formation of the website back in the 1990s.

Kuntz said two Internet departments will continue to exist – a 21-person editorial team in the Toronto office (which could increase to 28 by the end of the year), and a separate digital team that hosts the websites.
This more accurate description of the firings obviously changes my commentary, so I would simply ignore it as it was based on incorrect information.

Apologies, friends.
