Announcement from SB Newsroom

On the one-year anniversary of the Santa Barbara News-Press meltdown, the eight reporters who were illegally fired for their union organizing efforts have put together a 25-minute documentary chronicling the dramatic events of the past 12 months.

Produced by Melissa Evans and edited by Lew Marklin Marsh, the documentary features seven of the fired reporters recounting the story in chronological order.

The documentary will air on the SB Newsroom television show on Channel 17, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 12; 11 a.m. Saturday, July 14; and 8 p.m.. Sunday, July 15. The production will also be posted on the Santa Barbara Newsroom Web site on Friday, July 13.

There's also a notice in that the SB Newsroom is calling it quits. Too bad.

Wow. Powerful film. Fact is stranger than any fiction. McCaw has always been able to hide behind a thick barrier of lawyers. On August 14 hope to hear what she has to say on the stand.

Baron at 9:51 PM, the NLRB can explain it to you on August 14.

See you there.

To 9:51 So you are saying that an employee should do the owner's bidding even if that owner operates in an unethical and potentially illegal manner?

Loyalty does not mean leaving self respect and honesty at the door. An employee has a responsibility to the community as well as the company. Should the owner operate in a manner that is detrimental to the community and not attempt to rectify the situation, the employee has the right AND the responsibility to expose that owner, even if it means jepordizing their job.
