Tribune CEO Sam Zell is shocked and appalled!

It turns out the big boss was not displeased by a recent video posted by Chicago Tribune staffers that won a contest in the Chicago Sun-Times regarding the proposed sale of naming rights to Wrigley Field.

Here is an excerpt from an e-mail he sent the staff, which I'm going to assume I'm allowed to share with you, seeing as how all of his e-mails about the company's finances also seem to make it into the public domain:

"Needless to say, I was shocked! Appalled! The video was a blatant disregard for Tribune Company policy. It demonstrated a glaring disrespect for your chairman and CEO. (I’m much better looking, clearly more agile, and I think whoever played me was singing off key.)

"So, I immediately referred to the 11th commandment: Thou shalt not take oneself too seriously. And, then I shared the video with my family and friends."
