Fake publisher says Chicago Tribune is killing its print edition on New Year’s Eve

Chicago Tribune social media manager Amy Guth tweeted this today:

She’s referring to this Facebook message posted by someone posing as Tribune publisher Tony Hunter.

The fake Tony Hunter page was still up at last check. I’ve asked Guth for comment. | UPDATE: A day later, the page remains online with many commenters apparently believing they’re responding to the real publisher.

UPDATE II: “We put in the request w FB to take down the page yesterday,” the Tribune’s Guth emails on Thursday morning.
