Today's Tribune-related Outrages

Posted by Mitchell - September 28, 2006 (entry 410)

Outrage One: Cursor notes that "that the Tribune-owned Baltimore Sun and Newsday have recently closed, or may close, bureaus in Beijing, Mexico City and London, which the Sun had maintained since 1924." Unfortunately, this is simply the latest in a trend of American newspapers closing foreign news bureaus.

Outrage Two: The Tribune's ombudsman finally wrote an op-ed worth reading, and then seven days later announced his resignation from the Tribune.

Outrage Three: Guess what Evanston resident and Tribune spineless jellyfish president got himself a pay raise? Well done, Dennis. I'm sure that'll all but cement your special place in hell.

Gosh, this makes you so angry, it almost makes you to want to do something about it. Well, here's a national call for action.
