The Advocate newspaper announces cutbacks

Remember that time when The Advocate newspaper heroically swooped into New Orleans to save us from going without a daily paper? Well, now it seems like The Advocate needs to be saved.

The paper is looking to cut its full-time employees by 5% throughout a buyout offer. Basically, with 380 full-time employees, 19 could lose their jobs, and half of the cutbacks will be in the news department.

If not enough employees take a buyout plan there would be involuntary layoffs.
