A class goodbye

What the staff at KARE 11 did for their long-time boss yesterday was astounding, at least for the normally bunker-mentality world of the media.

KARE 11 fired Tom Lindner this week, where he’d been the news boss since the early ’90s. What was astounding is the station’s news department didn’t treat the story like it didn’t exist, and produced this piece which — intentionally or not — leaves the viewer wondering how the firing makes the station somehow better off.
