After a five-hour meeting among with the directors, the managing editor, the chief of staff, and all the department editors and sub-editors, the publisher ordered the Ode Street Tribune's management consultant to draft a reprimand statement. The Tribune's reporter is to be reprimanded for a lack of balance in the stories he filed over the past week. Via a regrettable leak, the reporter evidently learned of the forthcoming reprimand. He stormed out of the Tribune's headquarters late Friday afternoon after hollering, "You [expletive deleted] suits have no [expletive deleted] idea about [expletive deleted] real news!"
While the Tribune requires its reporter to work on weekends, his whereabouts are not currently known. A sub-editor has a promising lead on where the reporter will be this weekend, but unfortunately lacks staff to follow-up on the lead. Meanwhile, the Tribune remains actively seeking journalists.
