SAM ZELL, THE OWNER of the Tribune newspapers, met with the staff of the Orland Sentinel recently. He fielded questions about his journalistic philosophy.
Zell answered one question by saying that the journalists must provide the information people want, not the information journalists think the public needs. Then he said to the person asking the question, "F**k you."
Watch the video. Who is right in this situation? Was the journalist obnoxious? Or is Zell out of place talking about business to journalists?
