In the past few days I’ve twice been forwarded a document that my Tribune sources find pretty astonishing. It’s a list of 209 Tribune Company managers and former managers who came into quite a bit of money when Sam Zell took the company private back in December of 2007. Most of the checks were written because these managers had, over the years, been rewarded with Tribune Company stock that they could finally cash in. Other moneys were “deferred bonuses” from the company’s management incentive program — bonuses those managers had earned but chose to leave with the company for the time being in order to put off having to pay taxes on them.
