Anyone know what the story is behind this?

I saw that on FTVLive today I'm sure Perry Sook & WLNS liked seeing it made headlines somewhat NOT. They should know better not to post that on social media.

From what I gathered, it was taken from a Tim Skubick article about the state hanging up a portrait of Snyder in the capitol; that line was removed from the article and the tweet containing it was deleted.

MasterB -- Skubick probably got his ass reamed for it, don't worry. He's been doing this for decades, he should know better.

It got views. Jam’s happy despite the blow back. Journalism be damned. It’s all about the social media engagement... and will be until the clown is fired.

Sounds like something Skubick would do. Is it just me, or does that fella exude creepiness at times?

He goes unchallenged by management. Tim has so many side deals (including WKAR, Fox 2, radio) that he really doesn’t need WLNS. That’s why Jam plays into the ego and looks the other way. Tim is the epitome of the old boys club. That’s been an issue (and the focus of more than 1 HR meeting) for more than a decade.

I’ve met Skubick once, and only briefly. He has a sense of humor when not working.
