The Times article described a boys club atmosphere created by Michaels and his chief innovation officer, Lee Abrams, at the bankrupt newspaper and TV company. Abrams was recently fired, but the Tribune's board, which met yesterday, was apparently not satisfied that enough had been done to right the ship, reports the Los Angeles Times.
