As an amusing little aside to their recent spate of departures (and new hire), Roll Call’s Publisher Laurie Battaglia-Skinker has had it up to *here* with leaks from her publication to a certain D.C. media gossip blog.
As such, she sent a multi-page memo–hand-delivered in hard copy form to the mailboxes of staffers last week to limit the chance of email forwardability–by way of grumping about the recent leaks and reminding staff about appropriate use of company resources, and has been reminding staff of their at-will employment status. That’s certainly one way to buck up morale in the morale-challenged newsroom.
One would think that she’d be proud that she headed up a newspaper whose reporters do exactly what they’re trained to do: Identify and gather news and then disseminate it. It’s not the staff’s fault, after all, reporting is in their blood.
