CNET, one of the most well-known tech news sites, is laying off staff in a restructuring effort. CNET did not say how many people would lose their jobs, but they were expected to be significant as the company attempts to address its declining revenue streams. The layoffs come days after reports that AI-generated stories had infiltrated CNET’s site over the weekend. The move was met with shock and disbelief by readers and employees alike who questioned whether the popular tech news site should even exist anymore.

CNET news is restructuring, with layoffs expected.

The tech news site is one of the oldest on the internet, having launched in 1995. It’s owned by CBS and has been struggling lately; it laid off about 50 people last year after being acquired by its parent company. But now it seems that more big changes are coming for CNET: According to The New York Times (paywall), which first reported on this latest round of layoffs, a reorganization plan suggests that as many as 300 positions would be eliminated over two years–and since there are about 700 people working at CNET now, that means around half could be let go before all is said and done.

The situation at CNET isn’t unique; many media companies have been hit hard by changes in the industry. Advertisers are paying less for ads on the internet, adblockers make it harder to monetize web traffic and marketers are moving away from traditional media and toward social media like Facebook and Twitter.

You can read more about the AI-generated stories here, but in short, they were intended to create a new way to cover tech news that would be more efficient and less expensive than having humans do it. It didn’t work out that way: The first story was heavily criticized for being inaccurate and poorly written (and for being generated by an algorithm). The second story was pulled entirely after further scrutiny revealed even more errors.

CNET will continue to offer a “comprehensive suite of products and services that help consumers make the most of their technology,” according to its statement Wednesday afternoon. But it’s not clear how many people will lose their jobs as part of this restructuring effort — or if any other editorial positions may also be affected by these layoffs beyond those working on content creation software development teams (which include those responsible for CNET Labs).

The layoffs come days after reports that AI-generated stories had infiltrated the site. The company did not say exactly how many people would lose their jobs, but it did acknowledge that “the changes will affect all departments,” including editorial and sales.

CNET has been hit hard by changes in the media industry over the past decade or so, as companies like Google and Facebook have grown into behemoths with billions of users and advertisers flocking to them for ad revenue while traditional news outlets struggle to adapt their business models (or go belly up).

This isn’t just bad news for CNET employees–it’s also a reminder that AI is coming for our jobs too. As we’ve discussed before on this blog: we still don’t know what exactly will happen when computers take over certain tasks from humans; but whatever happens next is sure to have an impact on all kinds of writing done today.”

AI is coming for our jobs, but we still have no idea what’s next for CNET employees.
