    AP story.

    Former St. Paul Pioneer Press publisher Par Ridder has acknowledged taking confidential information from his old employer to his new job as publisher of the Star Tribune of Minneapolis.

    In videotaped testimony played Monday in Ramsey County District Court, Ridder acknowledged copying confidential financial documents from his Pioneer Press computer onto a portable computer drive and taking them to the Star Tribune.

    He also acknowledged sharing some of that data on advertising, profits and personnel matters with Star Tribune officials, including members of its operating committee.

    There's more but that's the gist. Everyone's friend Dean Singleton was in court as well.

    Ummm, subpar could be really (and hopefully) screwed on this.

    Wouldn't double bogey be a pretty good name for this joker?

    I posted links to the latest reporting on the old thread about the lawsuit. If you are a media junkie, the Rake magazine account is definitely worth your time.
