Tribune chief Sam Zell had a meeting with the staff of The Los Angeles Times today that was so wildly entertaining it puts to shame the one he held at Newsday two weeks ago. Among other things discussed-- his willingness to take a 50-cent salary!--he blasted outgoing editor John O'Shea, according to a newsroom source present.
Mr. Zell said this morning that Mr. O'Shea "pissed all over the company where he worked for over 30 years," and that he embarrassed the company.
"He really trashed him," our source said. "He said it was just unacceptable for him to humiliate me and humiliate this company and asked why he shit all over the place. He said that we have enough trouble as it is and it was a really, really bad way to go."
