CNN Lays Off Dozens, Outsources Their Jobs

(Media Bistro) CNN laid off dozens of employees today in its two documentary units, TVNewser has learned.

In a statement, the channel says that while it will continue to produce in-house docs–such as the “In America” series–much of its long-form journalism will now come from outside production companies. [...]

This is the second significant reorganization at CNN in four months. Back in November, CNN laid off dozens of employees across the country, with photojournalists, editors and video library staffers hit particularly hard.
