Media and Ethics

A "Mistake". Um yeah.
ST. PAUL, MINN. Former St. Paul Pioneer Press publisher Par Ridder has acknowledged taking confidential information from his old employer to his new job as publisher of the Star Tribune of Minneapolis.

In videotaped testimony played Monday in Ramsey County District Court, Ridder acknowledged copying confidential financial documents from his Pioneer Press computer onto a portable computer drive and taking them to the Star Tribune.
I would never hire nor work with such a guy. If someone came to my company with confidential information on a competitor, I would walk him to HR and have him disciplined and possibly fired. And this was done at the highest reaches of the newspaper's management. Unbelievable.
