"NEW YORK--The Hearst Corp. revealed today that it will tell its newspaper employees next week what it yesterday planned to do to them on an unspecified date in the future. The startling announcement from Hearst headquarters took its employees nationwide by surprise. "The company never gives us this much information about what plans they've hatched for us and our future," said one reporter at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, who wished to remain anonymous. 'We usually find out what's up on KING5.com.'"
A bit of gallows humor from Liz Brown at the Newspaper Guild.
