BBC journalists take part in second one-day strike

Guardian / Press Gazette
Unionized BBC journalists are taking part in a second, one-day strike to protest the organization’s plans to cut 387 jobs due to government funding cuts. The Guardian reports that another 1,000 journalism jobs could be lost due to a planned merger of BBC News and BBC World Service. Journalists walked out for 24 hours in July, too; that stoppage stopped the BBC from airing some television and radio news programs.
