    Who is/was the SE in Wausau? I heard legendary stories about him from his Salt Lake days. Just can't remember his name. There was a thread on here a while ago dedicated to the piece of work ...

    What's the deal with The Sentinel anyway? I can't help but notice that they always have the same ad for a general assignment reporter up every couple of months. Is it a horrible place to work, low salary, just a constantly changing staff, etc.?

    Much like BottomlessPit, I'm kind of interested to hear some of the horror stories. I've been told to stay away by at least three people, but none of them have really elaborated.

    There is a tale involving a 5-year-old being told, literally, to STFU by her father in the newsroom. It remains unverified.

    Why is a 5-year-old in the newsroom in the first place?

    There was a thread on here a couple years ago about how McMenemy posts jobs just to "motivate" his staff. Yes, I am too lazy to look it up.

    I also heard he did a bang-up job at the Eagle-Trib... may have been pushed instead of jumping, but I don't remember the story.

    I don't think we need to question the veracity of any story coming out of that newsroom...especially if it involves McEnemy.

    This is the same place that has a sign over the thermostat in its newsroom that reads, "Nobody allowed to touch expect Jeff." And that misspelling is deliberate.

    I bet this is another fake job posting used as "motivation", like the paper is so famous for.

    Child labor is pretty cheap.
