WHERE ARE MEG'S AND DOCTOR HARSH'S TWO CHILDREN? SPOILED BRATS WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT FOR THESE TWO PREPPY LOSERS. WHAT IS MEG SHIELDING HER FAMILY FROM? NEGATIVE MEDIA GLARE. WHEN ARNOLD WAS RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR HE POSED WITH HIS KIDS. WHY DON'T YOU, MEG? YOU COULD RUN YOUR SON'S POLICE MUG SHOT IN ONE OF YOUR ADS. APPARENTLY, BEATING UP ON WOMEN RUNS IN THE FAMILY. (WHITMAN HAD TO SETTLE WITH A FEMALE EBAY EMPLOYEE WHO CLAIMED MEG PUSHED HER) LIKE MOTHER LIKE SON. THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS GIVING YOU A FREE PASS. ARE THE FAMILY SKELETONS IN YOUR CLOSET ABOUT TO BREAK IN THE MEDIA? CHECK THE POLICE REPORT ON HER SON GRIFF WHO BROKE A WOMAN'S ANKLE -COPY AT RIGHT. THE SUREST WAY TO COUNTER THE IMMINENT BAD PUBLICITY IS FOR YOUR FAMILY TO MEET AND GREET THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA. YOU CONSTANTLY BRAG ABOUT WHAT A GREAT EXECUTIVE YOU ARE. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY IN NO DANGER, MEG, OF BEING NAMED MOTHER OF THE YEAR. NOT WITH THAT JAILBIRD SON OF YOURS. VISIT QUEERTY.COM FOR ALL THE JUICY DETAILS - OR GOOGLE 'MEG WHITMAN'S CHILDREN' FOR ALL THE GORY PARTICULARS.

LOS ANGELES TIMES NEW PROMOTIONAL CONTEST: SHOW US YOUR TITS AND WIN A HUNDRED DOLLARS." SORRY GUYS, THIS CONTEST IS ONLY OPEN TO THE LADIES. WHAT IS WALSH CONFIDENTIAL TALKING ABOUT? DJ RANDY MICHAELS  BEFOULED  THE FRONT PAGE OF THE GOOD GRAY TIMES... THE ONE IN NEW YORK.... WITH REPORTS OF HIS SEXIST SHENANIGANS AT A POSH CHICAGO EATERY. A DRUNKEN CEO ASKED A WAITRESS TO SHOW HIM HER TITS FOR A HUNDRED DOLLARS - MUCH TO THE SHOCK AND AWE OF CHICAGO TRIBUNE EXECS WHO WERE SITTING WITH HIM. HEY RANDY, SHOW ME YOUR BALLS AND WALSH CONFIDENTIAL WILL GIVE YOU A HUNDRED BUCKS. THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE RANDY'S BALLS ARE IN SAM ZELL'S BACK POCKET. GO ASK FOR THEM BACK.

DEEJAY RANDY'S BEST FRIEND, THE TRIBUNE CORP'S EXECUTIVE IN CHARGE OF INNOVATION WAS FORCED TO RESIGN AFTER SENDING A "SLUTS" VIDEO CONTAINING FEMALE NUDITY TO HUNDREDS OF TRIBUNE EMPLOYEES. WHO COMPLAINED? SEVERAL WOMEN. THE MALE EMPLOYEES WERE TOO INTIMIDATED TO RAISE THEIR VOICES IN PROTEST. AS ONE WOMAN REPORTER SAID TO WALSH CONFIDENTIAL, "THE ONLY PUSSIES IN THE NEWSROOM ARE THE MALE EDITORS AND REPORTERS."

THE NEW YORK TIMES IS THE FLAGSHIP OF AMERICAN JOURNALISM. NYT's DUTY IS TO KEEP THE PROFESSION ON AN EVEN KEEL. THE TRIBUNE IS OUT OF CONTROL AND THE TIMES STAGED AN INTERVENTION MUCH THE SAME WAY ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS DOES.

COUNTDOWN TILL CALIFORNIA BECOMES POTOPIA. PROGRESSIVES AGAINST POT (PAP) AND HIPPIES AGAINST PROP 19 KEEP WARNING VOTING PUBLIC THAT A YES VOTE WILL CAUSE THE MOTHER OF ALL UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES. THIS WEBSITE'S FILES ARE NEVER EDITED BECAUSE OUR CRYSTAL BALL IS NOT CLOUDED. GO BACK AND READ OUR PREDICTIONS. MEXICAN PRESIDENT FELIPE CALDERON SOUNDED AS IF HE WAS CHANNELING WALSH CONFIDENTIAL WHEN HE WARNED THAT LEGALIZATION OF CALIFORNIA CANNABIS WOULD CAUSE CHAOS IN MEXICO. THE NARCOTICS CARTELS STRONGLY URGE A YES VOTE, AND THE RAND INSTITUTE CHIMED IN WITH A SIMILAR MESSAGE JUST THE OTHER DAY.         

HOW CAN THE BORDER PATROL INTERDICT TONS OF CANNABIS SMUGGLED OUT OF THE U.S. ACROSS THE BORDERS TO MEXICO AND CANADA WHEN THE DOPE IS CONTAINED IN INNOCENT FOODSTUFF LIKE LOLLIPOPS--ALL DAY POTSUCKERS AND CHOCOLATE FUDGE. THOSE FOUR-LEGGED SNIFFERS WON'T BE OF MUCH VALUE. EX-POTHEAD BARRY OBAMA (DID HE SELL A LID OR TWO WHEN HE WAS A STUDENT AT LOS ANGELES  OCCIDENTAL COLLEGE?) HAS WARNED CALIFORNIA VOTERS THROUGH HIS ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER THAT THE FEDERAL GOV'T. WON'T SIT ON ITS HANDS THE WAY IT HAS WHEN MEDICAL MARIJUANA WAS ABUSED ON A MASSIVE SCALE. IF PROP 19 PASSES, POT WILL BE GROWN AND PROCESSED ON AN UNIMAGINABLE SCALE FOR THE WORLD MARKET RIGHT HERE. EXPECT THE ARMY RESERVES TO BE MOBILIZED. IS CALIFORNIA ABOUT TO LEGALIZE MARIJUANA AND VOTE IN A LAW AND ORDER ANTI-POT ATTORNEY GENERAL NAMED COOLEY IN THE SAME ELECTION? WATCH FOR NEWLY OPENED POT RESTAURANTS WHERE EVERYTHING ON THE MENU CONTAINS: THE MAGIC INGREDIENT, CANNABIS SATIVA. EVEN KIDS WHO DON'T WANT TO GET HIGH ON POT WON'T BE ABLE TO AVOID BEING UNKNOWINGLY DOSED. AND THE POLITICALLY CORRECT DOPE DEALERS WILL RAKE IN MILLIONS. FORGET GOLD AS THE SMARTEST INVESTMENT FOR THE FUTURE. THE GOLDEN INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY WILL BE ACAPULCO  GOLD! THE STATE FRANCHISE TAX BOARD HAS ABANDONED ITS ESTIMATE OF A BILLION DOLLAR TAX WINDFALL AFTER THE ULTRA ROSY PREDICTION WAS TORPEDOED BY THE RAND INSTITUTE. AND DON'T FORGET THE FATHER AND SON ACT. FORMER DEPUTY CHIEF OF POLICE JOSEPH DOWNING SIGNED THE BALLOT ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF PROP.19 WHILE HIS SON IS LAPD BRASS IN CHARGE OF ANTI-TERRORISM. ISN'T THAT NEWSWORTHY? HOW MANY REPORTERS IN CALIFORNIA COVERING THE PROP.19 STORY HAVE NOT FULLY DISCLOSED WHETHER THEY POSSESS A RX FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA? ASK KPPC IF HE HAS A PRESCRIPTION FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA? JUST ASKING ABOUT MARIJUANA FRONTS THAT MAKE SIZABLE CONTRIBUTIONS TO PUBLIC RADIO AND TELEVISION STATIONS. (ACTUALLY JOHN I AND DIFFER ON THIS ONE I AM FOR LEGALIZATION, REGULATION AND TAXATION OF WEED. I THINK JOHN IS STARTING TO SOUND LIKE A WILD EYED 1930‘S LADY’S TEMPERANCE LEAGUE MEMBER, PREDICTING CHILDREN WILL BE SNEAK FED DEMON RUM IF PROHIBITION IS LIFTED - HE IS JOINED IN OPPOSITION BY THE HIPPIES AND DESCENDANTS OF HIPPIES IN WEED HEAVEN, HUMBOLT COUNTY CA. THEY ARE AGAINST PROP 19...BECAUSE THEY THINK IT WILL BRING THEIR SKY HIGH PRICES DOWN. POLITICS DO MAKE STRANGE BEDFELLOWS. WHO EVER THOUGHT ANYONE WOULD LIKEN JOHN TO A TEMPERANCE LEAGUE LADY - MUCH LESS ME? OVERHEARD AT SWANKY PASADENA SWIMMING POOL - LADIES OF A CERTAIN AGE AGREEING THEY SUPPORT 19...THEY ARE SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING ALL THE YAK ABOUT MARIJUANA AND TIRED OF THE POLICE SPENDING A FORTUNE AND BUILDING AN EMPIRE ON A MARIJUANA DRUG WAR THEY NEVER WIN...SO NOW THEY AGREE WITH...ME? GO FIGURE - MIKI)

THE MAJOR REASON I VISIT L.A. CITY COUNCIL IS TO PROMOTE THIS WEBSITE WHICH IS AVERAGING SLIGHTLY OVER 80,000 SUCCESSFUL SERVER REQUESTS A MONTH OR ABOUT A MILLION A YEAR.

I HAVE BEEN ACCUSED OF CHARACTER ASSASSINATION BY COUNCILPERSON PAUL KORETZ. HE COULDN'T COME UP WITH ANYTHING SPECIFIC THAT I SAID; NEVERTHELESS FOLLOWING HIS ACCUSATIONS FELLOW COINCILPERSON TOM LABONGE CHIMED IN AND CALLED FOR CUTTING PUBLIC COMMENT AT CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS BY 50% - TO 1 MINUTE. THEY WERE INCENSED WHEN I SHOWED AN AD TO THE CAMERA FOR FALSE CALIFORNIA I.D. AND RECITED THE ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER WHERE FALSE I.D'S CAN BE OBTAINED. NO FOLLOW UP FROM THE CITY COUNCIL OR LAPD. AND I FINGERED STEVEN GLAZER IN FRONT OF THE 70,000 VIEWERS OF THE L.A. CITY COUNCIL.                  

IS COUNTY SUPERVISOR DON KNABE AN ANTI-SEMITE? JUST ASKING BECAUSE OF THE WAY HE TREATED ME AT THE SEPTEMBER MTA MEETING WHERE HE IS NOW THE CHAIRMAN. AFTER THE BOARD BORROWED $835 MILLION TO BUILD NEW RAIL SYSTEMS WHILE SLASHING BUS SERVICE BECAUSE MAYOR V AND THE REST OF THE BOARD MEMBERS COULDN'T FIND $20 MILLION TO MAINTAIN LAST YEAR'S BUS SERVICE LEVELS, I STATED UNDER PUBLIC COMMENT THAT THE MTA BOARD TREATS BUS RIDERS THE WAY HITLER TREATED THE JEWS. SUPE KNABE ACTED QUITE INCENSED. IS HE OF GERMANIC HERITAGE. KNABE THEN THREATENED TO BAN ME FROM SPEAKING UNDER PUBLIC COMMENT. TO BORROW A METAPHOR FROM RESIGNED ALASKA GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN, REPUBLICAN KNABE DID NOT HAVE THE "COJONES" TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON HIS THREAT. DOES THE FIRST AMENDMENT COVER NERVY KIKES LIKE JOHN WALSH? OF COURSE, ACCORDING TO THE POLITICALLY CORRECT GOSPEL, YOU CAN'T BE JEWISH UNLESS YOU HAVE A GERMAN OR POLISH LAST NAME OR SOMETHING THAT SOUNDS BIBLICALLY HEBREW. I POSSESS MY GRANDPARENT'S MARRIAGE LICENSE FROM NEW YORK CITY 1903 WHEREIN A JEWESS NAMED BERTHA BERGER MARRIED A CATHOLIC OF SWISS FRENCH AND IRISH EXTRACTION. SINCE JEWS HOLD THAT THE DEFINITION OF A JEW IS A CHILD FROM A JEWISH WOMB THAT MAKES MY MOTHER AND YOUR'S TRULY JEWISH. WE ESCAPED THE HOLOCAUST BECAUSE MY GRANDMOTHER'S FATHER, LEO BERGER GOT HIS JEWISH ASS OUT OF EUROPE BEFORE THE NAZIS ROSE TO POWER. HE MARRIED AN  AUSTRO HUNGARIAN JEWESS IN THE MORNINGSIDE HEIGHTS SECTION OF MANHATTAN AND WORKED AS A TAILOR. HE LEFT EUROPE BECAUSE HE HAD A PARANOID CONSPIRACY  THEORY THAT GENTILE GERMANS WERE PLOTTING TO KILL EVERY LAST JEW IN EUROPE.

I OWE MY VERY EXISTENCE TO MY GREAT GRANDFATHER'S CONSPIRACY THEORY. THE PRICE HE HAD TO PAY. HIS DAUGHTER MARRIED A CHRISTIAN. A RELATIVELY SMALL PRICE TO PAY IN ORDER TO ESCAPE THE HOLOCAUST. MIXED MARRIAGES WERE EXTREMELY RARE IN THOSE DAYS AND USUALLY INVOLVED JEWISH MEN MARRYING CHRISTIAN WOMEN. A FAMOUS PLAY OF THAT ERA WAS "ABIE'S IRISH ROSE". HE SAT SHIVAH AND SAID THE HEBREW PRAYERS FOR THE DEAD WHEN MY GRANDPARENTS TIED THE FORBIDDEN KNOT. BUT WAIT, THERE WAS A HAPPY ENDING. AFTER GOING THROUGH THE SHIVAV DRILL, THE NEXT DAY HE ACCEPTED THE MARRIAGE, AND THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER, FOR THE NEXT SEVENTEEN YEARS UNTIL MY GRANDMOTHER DIED IN CHILDBIRTH, ALONG WITH HER FOURTH CHILD AT HOME ON STATEN ISLAND. THAT'S WHY I SAY TO THE ESTEEMED DON KNABE ELECTED SEVERAL TIMES TO SERVE AS COUNTY SUPERVISOR; DON'T F*CK WITH ME YOU PIECE OF SH*T, I'LL SAY WHAT EVER I GODD*M PLEASE ABOUT THE NAZIS."

TRIVIA QUESTION ANSWER; DEMOCRAT MAYOR FOSTER OF LONG BEACH IS BROOKLYN BORN AND BRED. WHO IS THE CROSS-DRESSING CANDIDATE ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT, KEEP GUESSING. IF I LET THE ANSWER SLIP, IT WOULD ONLY IMPROVE THE CANDIDATE'S CHANCES OF WINNING. AND YOU KNOW HOW IMPARTIAL I AM.                                      

HERE AND THERE

HOLLYWOOD CONTINUES TO FALL APART AT THE SEAMS. THE CAPEZIO STORE AT THE SOUTHWEST CORNER OF VINE AND YUCCA SELLING THE FINEST IN FOOT WARE FOR THE PAST QUARTER CENTURY, WENT OUT OF BUSINESS LAST MONTH... JERRY RUBIN PUT ON A  GREAT BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR JOHN LENNON AT HIS STAR ON THE WALK OF FAME IN FRONT OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO CAPITOL RECORDS. CHALK ARTISTS DID SOME GREAT SIDEWALK COMMEMORATIVE ART TO SURROUND THE STAR. CAPITOL RECORDS INEXPLICABLY HOSED AWAY THE SIDEWALK CHALK ART THE NEXT`DAY.

MORE IN FUTURE ABOUT THE HALF A BILLION PLUS DOLLAR LOAN OUT OF OBAMA'S BACK POCKET TO PAY FOR A LIGHT RAIL DOWN CRENSHAW BOULEVARD. IT SURE MADE MAXINE WATERS AND HER FRIENDS HAPPY. THE LEGALITY OF THIS LOAN WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT OBAMA.

NEVER FORGET THE PSYCHOTIC RAVINGS YOU FIRST SEE HERE COME BACK AS TOMORROW'S CONVENTIONAL WISDOM... (LITERALLY THIS TIME - AND THIS WAS WRITTEN ON THE 18TH - BEFORE TRIBUNE’S MICHAELS ANNOUNCED RESIGNATION...JOHN’S RAVINGS GETTING REALLY PSYCHIC AS WELL AS PSYCHOTIC -SCAREY) AND NEVER FORGET THE SAGE ADVICE OF STORYTELLER ROALD DAHL: BELIEVE ONLY IN LIES. TRUST ONLY THE UNTRUSTWORTHY. RELY ONLY ON THE UNRELIABLE AND ABOVE ALL:EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED.


Steven Glazer,left, Brown Campaign Chair, called Whitman a “whore” for making a deal with Police Officers Union President, Alan Barcelona, right, to protect the union from pension cuts if they endorsed her. Did she sell out for an endorsement? Would that make her a “whore” in political terms? You be the judge did she “ebay” herself.

This the closest we will probably get to a family pic of Meg and her offspring - now why would anyone want to hide such cute boys??? Why indeed? Could it be son Griff’s (top right) arrest report below? How about his racist “N word” remarks at Princeton - or the expulsions from school, or...something worse no one knows about??

Tribune's Top Exec Poised to Resign

Sources: Michaels to exit amid claims of crass behavior

By Michael Oneal, Steve Mills and Stacy St. Clair

Tribune staff reporters

11:10 PM CDT, October 19, 2010

Tribune Company CEO Randy Michaels in the Chicago Tribune

newsroom in 2007. (Charles Osgood/Tribune)


Randy Michaels, Tribune Co.'s embattled chief executive, has decided to resign his post at the Chicago-based media company and intends to leave the company before the end of the week, sources close to the situation said.

He will be replaced by a four-member office of the president that the sources said would comprise Eddy Hartenstein, president and publisher of the Los Angeles Times; Tony Hunter, president and publisher of the Chicago Tribune Media Group; Nils Larsen, Tribune Co.'s chief investment officer; and Don Liebentritt, chief restructuring officer.

The development comes after weeks of turmoil at the bankrupt company, brought on by assertions that Michaels and his management team displayed boorish behavior and fostered a sexist, hostile work environment. Even as the Tribune Co. board met Tuesday to discuss Michaels' fate in light of the crisis, new complaints by current and former employees were emerging.

A spokesman for Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times and other media properties, would not comment on Michaels' planned departure or the proposed succession plan. Michaels and the other executives involved did not return calls and e-mails seeking comment.

The sources said Michaels has willingly decided to make his exit, having concluded that it was best for the company under the circumstances. He and the board had determined that the turmoil is distracting employees, threatening to hurt business and complicating the company's efforts to emerge from an especially contentious bankruptcy process.

Under the plan, stabilizing the situation would fall to the new office of the president, which sources said would be occupied by the heads of Tribune Co.'s two largest business units, the executive in charge of the Chapter 11 restructuring and Larsen, who helped structure real estate billionaire Sam Zell's 2007 leveraged buyout of the company. The arrangement, however, will be temporary. When the bankruptcy case ends, Tribune Co. will be controlled by its senior creditors, who will choose their own board.

Michaels' departure may have become inevitable when the New York Times newspaper ran an unflattering report earlier this month that colored the company as a sexist "frat house" increasingly populated with former Michaels associates from the radio industry.

That perception seemed to be confirmed several days later when Lee Abrams, whom Michaels handpicked as his chief innovation officer, sent all employees an e-mail containing a link to a video of a newscast parody with nudity and profanity that he labeled "Sluts."

For the board, these events dialed up the pressure to exercise its fiduciary duty to protect the company's credibility and employees, sources said. Board members were especially sensitive to the legal issues given that they had already become potential targets of litigation in the tangled bankruptcy case.

Although Abrams resigned on Friday, and Michaels responded to the allegations with denials and assertions that the company's culture was not offensive, even fellow executives lashed out publicly. The Chicago Tribune's editor, Gerould Kern, trying to distance his own fourth-floor newsroom from Michaels' offices two stories above, said Abrams' video was "offensive" and "completely inappropriate."

Michaels, who has enjoyed a successful but controversial career in radio, has struggled to fight the perception that his corporate culture has a crude element to it. After Abrams' e-mail spurred complaints, Michaels said in a memo to employees that Tribune Co. would not tolerate such behavior. His denials, however, seemed to embolden some critics and encourage others to speak out.

One example is Denise Brown, a former member of the company's corporate communications staff. Brown, who sat across the hall from Michaels on the Tribune Tower's sixth floor, said she was quietly disgusted with what she saw going on in Tribune Co.'s executive suite before she left the company earlier this year to start a small business. After the Times story, Brown began blogging about her concerns.

In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Brown described an incident in 2008 when she had been given the task of organizing a Mardi Gras lunch for people on the sixth floor. The Cajun food she ordered came with a set of colorful beads and she put them on as she walked down the hallway. She said that when she encountered Michaels in the hallway he asked, "What did you have to do to earn those beads? Will you do that for me?"

Brown said she took it as a clear reference to the Mardi Gras tradition in which women earn beads for exposing their breasts.

Then, she said, he walked up to her with a big smile and shook her hand saying: "You're not offended, are you?"

"He was nice and charming, as always, but it was very off-putting," Brown said, noting she felt heavy pressure to go along with the general tenor of the work environment.

"If you spoke up, you were portrayed as a sissy," she said.

"She's a very nice person," Michaels said of Brown. "I've read her blog and I'm sorry she feels that way."

Brown -- and other sources who asked not to be named because they were embarrassed or were worried about their jobs -- said the general atmosphere in Tribune Co.'s executive suite since Michaels arrived was often loud, profane and juvenile. This was especially true, they said, when Michaels was joined by a group of fellow radio executives he recruited from former employers, including Clear Channel Communications.

Office birthday parties were especially raucous, several employees said. Michaels and his "friends and family," as the Clear Channel group was known, tended to congregate and trade ribald jokes and stories.

The antics sometimes leaked outside the building. Several times earlier this year, Michaels and others gathered in the executive offices with laser pointers used to guide presentations, Tribune Tower sources said. Shining them out the window and laughing loudly enough to be heard down the hall, they targeted passing pedestrians and the office building across Michigan Avenue. Twice, according to officials of both buildings, Tribune Co. security received complaints that the lights were bothering neighboring occupants.

"It's immature," said one source. "It's not what I want my CEO doing, not how I want him running the company."

Michaels' interactions with employees often caused such bewilderment. Three current and former employees said he once joined a group of workers in Tribune Tower's Nathan Hale lobby late one afternoon, following a function with a client. Beer was being served, which turned the event into a happy hour of sorts. Michaels, the employees said, spent close to 30 minutes telling the group, which included several women, a string of jokes that one listener said were the foulest he had ever heard.

"This whole team came in and they're all so creative," said one woman at the party that day. "But the professionalism of the company was really trashed with them."

One former Tribune Co. corporate employee said she had an interaction with Michaels that played a significant role in her decision to leave the company. It occurred shortly after Michaels arrived at Tribune, she said, when she was called to his office to review some documents with him. Michaels, she said, asked her to come around to his side of the desk, even though there was no chair. As she stood next to him, he asked her to lean down and move closer so that eventually she was crouching at his side, which made her feel uncomfortable.

"Then he looked at me and said, 'Did anyone tell you that you'd look really good on your knees?'" she recalled.

She said her discomfort grew and she turned red.

"He said, 'Oh, you're embarrassed. I hope I didn't offend you,'" she said. "But he was laughing about it."

She left the office, upset with what had happened.

"What gives him the right to say something like that?" she asked. "I didn't know him. It wasn't friendly banter. It was sexual. … It made me feel like I couldn't respect an organization run by these individuals."

She said she never complained officially because she decided "it wasn't worth my while."

For Tribune Co.'s board the decision about how to handle Michaels was complicated by the realities of the bankruptcy process. Tribune Co., which filed for Chapter 11 protection in December 2008, is expected to be taken over by a group of senior creditors and a group of banks led by JPMorgan Chase. That means the board and management likely will be reconsidered, if not replaced, when the new owners take over and choose their own board to oversee the company.

Corporate governance experts, however, said the current board still has to worry about liability issues stirred up by the continued allegations as well as the toll on the company's reputation and business prospects. The standard, said Stephen Presser, a professor of law and business at Northwestern University, is that directors can be sued if they fail to intervene in a situation where a prudent director would have acted. Such lawsuits, while rare, are becoming more frequent, he said. In fact, the courts treat failure to act by directors far more harshly than poor decisions by boards that otherwise adhered to basic business principles. "If they fail to fire this guy and he costs the firm lots and lots of money and a reasonable director would have let the guy go, they conceivably could (run into) trouble," Presser said.

Tribune reporters Ameet Sachdev, Julie Johnsson and Phil Rosenthal contributed to this report.
