Strib Guild to members: Plug those leaks


The Pi Press has an anonymous source on the Star Tribune's woes, and newspaper guild officials are none too pleased.

Following their rival's story published this morning, in message posted to the guild's blog, co-chairs David Chanen and Graydon Royce wrote:

3. A reminder. The Pioneer Press quoted an anonymous source in a story today discussing cost cuts in our newsroom. We want to echo what Nancy Barnes told everybody during her meetings yesterday: Please keep such information inside these walls. It is the Guild's own best interest to do so. [Emphasis in original]

An addendum: if you're going to spill, spill to your friendly neighborhood alternative weekly instead. It's the right thing to do.
