    Even though the stock dropped 79 percent last year!

    Yay incompetence!


    There's a whole bunch of other stuff on the blog that has been updated today that is worth a look. Unbelievable.

    After the government finishes ripping AIG a new one, they should go after this guy and Lean Dean.

    And a friend is on one of his Gannett-sponsored furlough days today. Maybe Dubow could kick him some pocket change out of that bonus?

    *Edited to add a solid comment from that blog post:

    "By the way, it's no longer called a furlough.

    "They're Dubow Appreciation Days."

    I'm not in any way taking this guy's side, but for the love of God, a little bit of effin' accuracy would be nice.

    Dude received an $875K bonus and made $3.1 million TOTAL in 2008, which is half of what he made in 2007. At least that's what it says in the link provided.

    My apologies - I was incorrect.

    Another thing that caught me was gannett paid $78 million for this program/company called ripple 6. Why?

    Dubow made it a point in his email to employees, to say he too was taking a furlough. Well great, you took your furlough then got nearly a $1 million bonus. I'll take another furlough if I can get a bonus. Shit.

    Still and all, despicable that any CEO seeing his company stock fall that far, asking employees to basically take a week off without pay to help the bottom line, accepts $1 in bonus money. Sliding down a razor blade into a vat of iodine is too good for this prick and his like.
