A former Baltimore Sun staffer sent a story about the Tribune-owned newspaper’s New Year’s Eve fireworks display donation, along with this comment:
It’s offensive The Sun would buy a bunch of fireworks for the city when it is paying reporters and editors increasingly tiny sums and bleeding parts of the staff through attrition. And it’s really offensive that a MEDIA COMPANY “declined to say how much the media company donated.” How can you ask the people you’re interviewing to be transparent when you yourself are not transparent? Very irritating.
I’ve invited Baltimore Sun Media Group Senior Vice President/Marketing Judy Berman to respond and will post her email when/if it comes in.
Your thoughts on the donation?
