LA Times Employees Bite Back
Today some LA Times staffers decided to tell owner Sam Zell what they think of his stewardship -- with a three-story banner. On the LA Times building.
Which takes some kind of balls.
The website at the bottom of the sign -- tellzell.com -- has been chronicling the paper's downsizing from the inside. This summer 250 jobs will be eliminated, 150 from the newsroom (that's editorial to you and me). Tell Zell's proprietor -- the pseudonymous Ink Stained Retch -- is on staff at the paper. For the moment, at least.
