Editor & Publisher reports that the Los Angeles Times will cut 300 positions, including 70 editorial staff, or about 11% of the newsroom. The site has a memo from Editor Russ Stanton outlining plans to restructure the daily into four sections.

The paper has cut about 300 jobs from the newsroom alone since last summer in three rounds of layoffs.
