N.Y. Times on Tribune Travails

TRIBUNE’S ANIMAL HOUSE: The New York TimesDavid Carr writes a front page story today about the Tribune Co.’s ongoing bankruptcy hearings under owner Sam Zell and the "frat-like" workplace culture created by ex-Clear Channel exec and radio DJ Randy Michaels and his crew, citing their use of “sexual innuendo, poisonous workplace banter and profane invective.” The article recounts several anecdotes, including Michaels offering a waitress $100 to show him her breasts, he and Tribune Interactive’s Marc Chase loudly discussing "the sexual suitability of various employees," a senior executive and a female employee allegedly having sex on an office balcony, and a management poker party in the office of the company's former publisher.  For the complete Times story, click here.
