Strib seems likely to eliminate Mack's post
The Rake and City Pages report that job cuts at the Star Tribune may impact local architecture coverage. City Pages speculates that Linda Mack, the paper's longtime architecture critic, might not be covering building and landscape design. According to City Pages: "Among the expected casualties of reassignments, according to newsroom sources: Larry Oakes's Duluth bureau, Linda Mack's architecture coverage, Doug Smith's outdoors column, Jay Weiner's sports-finance beat, Jeff Shelman's coverage of the Golden Gophers, Neil Justin's national TV writing, James Lileks's humor column, Doug Grow's metro column, Sara Glassman's fashion coverage, Jeff Strickler's film criticism, and Randy Salas's internet column." If you haven't been following the saga of job cuts at the Star Tribune, New York Times media columnist David Carr covered the subject in his Monday column.
