Dean Starkman reported Tuesday night that DFM plans to cashier its Project Thunderdome, a national newsroom for the company’s many newspapers, and lay off about 100 employees, including “higher-level executives.”

Ken Doctor writes that Alden Global Capital, the hedge fund that owns most of DFM, is “readying its newspaper properties for sale.”
