We mentioned last week that the Chicago Tribune is cutting jobs. Well, MoveOn.org thinks they're unnecessary cuts that will water down local news. MoveOn claims that the profits of Tribune Media Company aren't where the owners want them to be (even though they say they're quite large) and that's why about 100 folks are losing their jobs. And they'd like for you to sign their online petition to demand that the cuts are reversed.
