Thanksgiving Eve was the last day of work for about 80 newsroom staffers at the Los Angeles Times. The employees accepted buyout offers made by the newspaper in an effort to reduce costs and survive in an era which has been tough on print media. 

Tony Perry, former Los Angeles Times San Diego bureau chief, and media analyst Ken Doctor joined Take Two for a discussion about how the paper will function in the wake of the buyouts.
