This weekend featured massive layoffs at the New Jersey paper The Star-Ledger - try 50 percent of their newsroom staff. Fortunately a few new gigs are popping up. Liberal journalist Joshua Micah Marshall has no doubt requested one of the more annoying resume deluges in recent memory by announcing today that his Talking Points Memo site will look to add two full-time Washington reporters (with health care). Since most sites have cut back on political reporting because of the anticipated post-election downturn, this is inspiring news for everyone who doesn't have to read the cover letters in Marshall's inbox.
