Tribune could have been bigger and better than Time Warner.
However upper management was feared and hated in the ranks, and they ran the place like a small market newspaper that owned a couple TV stations. No one is even aware of an org chart in that place.
Then here comes Zell! Zell came in to make it private - the fools working there welcomed him with open arms! That is, until he pulled his axe out and started trimming all the fat in every department. The staff was shocked -shocked!- that their new pal Zell was cutting people and departments! How dare he!?
On top of it, Zell found a way to dumb down the Chicago Tribune! Quite a task. Even the USA Today blushes at the new coloring book format.
I hope they're not able to re-org and they just go away like Pan Am...
