Leftist Israeli Newspaper Haaretz Begins Layoffs: A Sign of the Times or for the Times?

In the past, anytime a op-ed columnist from The New York Times was in need of derogatory information concerning Israel, he or she could usually find the "goods" in Israel's uber leftist newspaper, Haaretz. Haaretz, however, which began to demand subscription fees from online readers in order to bolster its faltering financial position (sound familiar?), has begun to lay off workers (see: http://www.jpost.com/NationalNews/Article.aspx?id=286006).

Let's face it: Newspapers are in trouble around the globe. Can newspapers catering to a leftist readership carve out a niche market? In Israel the answer is apparently "no."

A sign of the times or for the Times?
