    I cannot believe that reporter got in trouble for that tweet

    I can ... if only because the Block family is involved with that publication.

    Maybe for a moment. I love it!! Alexis Johnson is getting support from all sorts of publications and the Toledo NewsGuild demands an apology to Alexis. This is awesome. The suits who made this ridiculous decision are under big-time fire from MANY groups taking the reporter's side.
    I love it. Guess what ... another suit is gonna get fired for that ill advised ridiculous decision to take Alexis and the photographer off the beat. Bye bye Ms. Kane, you are gone. Twitter has spoken and you made one big error.

    The Blocks appear to be eager to give New Gannett and Lee a run for their money as the worst newspaper owners in the country.

    The Blocks have always been off their rockers, but John Robinson's wife is a heinous creature who seems to have made it all worse.

    New Gannett and Lee are blundering corporate entities. The Blocks are crazy and rich, and as rich as they are, I’m thinking they’re probably more crazy.

    This generation, yes. The old man was a good guy from what I've heard.

    Yes, but he's been gone along time.

    You obviously don't know the Blocks.
    They'll ride out the outrage and that'll be that.

    It affects so many people on that staff who retweeted her tweet. It must be so toxic there. I was reading several reporters have been taken off the protest coverage. The woman at the center of the controversy hadn't heard from anybody since Friday at the paper. I love the fact they had a news conference today. Those owners have to at least be a tad embarrassed at the little people, the lowly reporters winning the PR battle here. I applaud the reporters who obviously dont care what their editors think.
