    Understandable move by TribCo. After all, if it doesn't stay competitive and give generous bonuses, all that top management talent will go elsewhere.


    Where? You know ... elsewhere.

    Everytime I hear a story about how our industry is dying, I read one of these stories. Newspapers can't turn a profit? How come Baltimore has $70 million to hand out in bonuses? Ridiculous.

    I could be wrong, but I would assume these bonus are "Tribune-wide" and not going just to Baltimore. Baltimore guild just had the balls to speak truth to power.

    I'm staggered how any bonuses can ever be allowed by any business in bankruptcy.

    If your fucking executives are so great, you would not be in bankruptcy.

    So pay your fucking bills first, get out of bankruptcy, and then worry about how to retain your brilliant executives.

    Y'all are just hateful and ignorant. You know how much a yacht payment sets you back a month? Give these execs a break.

    We make a lot, but we spend a lot, too.
