Several websites have reported an employee bloodbath at CBSNews.com, with one pink-slipped employee writing anonymously that more than 20 have been hit. One unidentified emailer told the TVNewser website: "layoffs include mix of veterans and newbies. Already low morale said to now be even lower." In a statement, CBS Interactive indicated that the layoffs were the result of an overall realignment of its online properties and noted that as a result of acquisitions it had grown its workforce by hundreds of employees. TVNewser also reported that seven members of the staffs of NBC News and MSNBC had also been let go.
