What's wrong with this picture?

Jim Romenesko: "While CEOs at struggling newspaper chains are getting huge bonuses, journalists at struggling papers are getting pay cuts. Media writer Michael Roberts hears that the Denver Post has cut the salaries of sports columnist Woody Paige and editorial page columnist Vincent Carroll." Unbelievable. One observer shook his head and said, “This is a time for gallows humor in the newsroom.” Yes, sadly. And there's no clearer sign that newspapers are in their death throes when they start eating their young.
