Man, it's been a dire day for media across the board today. Viacom is in the process of laying off 850 people, or about 7 percent of the company's global staff. CNBC is said to be laying off 80, NBC Universal is cutting people, The Arizona Republic, Gannett's second-biggest people, laid off people and the Rocky Mountain News, Colorado's oldest paper and Scripps Howard's biggest paper, is officially up for sale.
