    I'd rather work at a place owned by freakin Advance Publications than this newsroom. Another door closes, at least until the Block family is removed from the journalism industry.

    It's a shame because I know people who worked there when old man Block was alive and it was considered a great place to work.

    Just playing Devil's Advocate here, but you'd rather work at Advance than in a newsroom that hasn't had layoffs under this family?
    Because I'm pretty sure that's the case in Pittsburgh, and most of us can't say the same at our shops.

    Has the publisher apologized yet to the staff? It's an important question.

    No. Brother just put out a BS press release with enough spin to get a 747 started

    His goose, it is cooked. Extra crispy, even.

    Pro tip: When you shoot video, don't hold the phone vertically.

    A person holding his or her phone vertically has plausible deniability in that situation. Horizontally, and it's pretty fucking obvious what you're doing. If Block spotted that, the person could have been fired on the spot.

    So as long as there's no layoffs, it's cool to work for a scum bag who also is a child abuser.

    No layoffs but they've had at least four rounds of buyouts. Oh, and they their staff hasn't seen a raise in 13 years and has worked without a contract for two.
