During the recession of the early 1980s, automobile manufacturer Ford Motor Co. has unscrewed half of the light bulbs in its corporate corridors to save money. Now it looks like the automaker is at it again. In an effort to save money, Ford's CFO Don Leclair has ordered employees to cancel all company-paid subscriptions to all publications. A Ford spokesman has declined to say how many newspapers and periodicals were affected or how much Ford would save. Ford will rely on free Internet sources for news and information.
