An anonymous Patch editor writes to media blogger Jim Romenesko that after surviving 60-hour work weeks and no freelance budget he/she’s throwing in the towel now that the company is asking him/her to pass out promotional red and blue hats (that’s a picture of them supplied to Romenesko) to sources and others. You can read the letter here.
It isn’t clear where the editor is located or if this is a chain-wide phenomenon. If any of you Bay Area Patch editors care to illuminate, let me know. Privacy assured, of course.
