This week’s Desperately Seeking the News details the temperament of Tennessean editor Mark Silverman, who apparently enraged his staff when he recently threw a newspaper at features editor Cindy Smith. Is that wrong? In the interest of full disclosure, that kind of thing happens around here all the time, because I find that such negative reinforcement tends to inspire. Unfortunately, an employee recently caught some of my motivational methods on video. This clip offers an unflinching, if disturbing, look at how the sausage is made and how I run the news operation at the Nashville Scene. It will make me look like a bully, but I don’t care.
