To be sure, the term "shrinkage" means many things to people, especially fans of the hit television program "Seinfeld."
Yet, to folks at the New York Times, it means facing financial realities, and doing more to save money.
To right-thinking Americans concerned with the ongoing bias problem in the media, this shrinkage means less liberal propaganda.
As reported by the Associated Press Sunday (emphasis added throughout):
The New York Times is moving to a smaller format starting Monday, cutting 1.5 inches from its width and moving to what is becoming a newspaper industry standard of 12 inches.
The change, which the company originally announced a year ago, will result in cost savings of about $10 million per year, spokeswoman Diane McNulty said.
Conservatives applauding this announcement will be made even happier by the following:
The change will result in the space for news being reduced by about 10 percent, but the paper will make up for about half of that decline by adding extra pages. Additional pages may also be added from time to time to accommodate major news stories, she said.
Stand up and cheer, folks. Beginning tomorrow, there will be less liberal propaganda on the planet.
I'm verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves.
