Playing ‘Chicken’ at that LA Times

Between the Editor & Publisher, and the Tribune Company. Frankly, if I was Mr. Smith, and I asked for a cost reduction program, which my employees not only refused to provide, but then went public with their refusal, I’d consider that insubordination & grounds for termination.

I’m not making judgments about who has the right approach to fixing the paper’s problems, but if the Tribune gives in, it’s clear that the inmates are running the asylum, and it’s likely their demands will only escalate.
