The Zell Tapes Released

With just a little less profanity than the Nixon tapes, NPR‘s All Things Considered ran a story about Sam Zell and used clips of his meetings with reporters.

“This is the first unit of Tribune that I’ve talked to that doesn’t generate any revenue. So all of you are overhead,” Zell said during the late February meeting with editors and reporters for the company’s Washington bureau.

When you get called ‘overhead’ you ceased to be drunk or incompetent. So…there’s a plus, right?
