The New Republic Has Fewer Editorial Staffers

Five editorial staffers at The New Republic, including senior editor Christopher Orr, have been let go in the face of slumping ad sales and ciruclation.

The center-left semi-monthly politics and arts magazine, which was co-founded by Walter Lippmann in 1914, is reducing its workforce by between 10 to 15 percent. Frank Foer stays on as editor, but some staffers, although still listed in the masthead, will become freelancers. The New Republic is owned by Marty Peretz and in 2007, had a circulation of roughly 60,000.
