Did Business Journal lay off staff?

Speaking of Internet terrorism, if this Arizona Republic story is true, it is dreadful. It spells the end of quality journalism in Arizona: “The Business Journal of Phoenix laid off a handful of employees Tuesday, according to reports confirmed by a senior staffer at the weekly business newspaper.”

The Business Journal was the last bastion of great reporting in Arizona. No news on the Phoenix Business Journal Web site. Only the Republic report. Nothing on New Times or East Valley Tribune, either

It comes the same day Phoenix Coyotes filed Chapter 11, giving them an out to leave Arizona. Arizona leads the nation in job loss. This certainly compounds the situation.
