    Remember, if she doesn't get a bonus, she'll bolt elsewhere!

    Lee employees could only hope.

    Give her a bonus. Lay off some more people. Hire some more consultants. Bring in some more writing coaches. Add some more management types. Consolidate more desks into one command center. And above all else ... kill the print product and go online only as soon as possible.

    The print product has a great future. You should invest in press, paper, and ink companies.

    Aren't there some sort of rules that prevent employees from selling stock for a certain length of time before earnings announcements?

    Any chance something comes from it? Or is she too rich to be prosecuted?

    One of the Facebook commenters on Romenesko's page said that it was some sort of scheduled sell-off to pay for taxes that she does every year and allegedly has little control over. True or not, I'm guessing she has a few built-in excuses to deter any sort of prosecution.
