Indy | Let's file this report under 'Poopgate II'

In a post that a reader pointed me to this morning, Indiana blogger Ruth Holladay says The Indianapolis Star newsroom got a package addressed to top editor Dennis Ryerson on Dec. 23. "When it was opened -- it is uncertain by whom, but someone in the newsroom tore off the wrappings, etc., possibly even himself -- it turned out to be a package full of shit,'' Holladay says. "Quite literally."

  1. If it is company policy to treat former and current employees like shit, sooner or later someone will return the favor.

Jim says: "Proceed with caution; this is a free-for-all comment zone. I try to correct or clarify incorrect information. But I can't catch everything. Please keep your posts focused on Gannett and media-related subjects. Note that I occasionally review comments in advance, to reject inappropriate ones. And I ignore hostile posters, and recommend you do, too."
