Paper Wants to Censor Employees

In Pennsylvania, The York Daily Record is in contract negotiations with its employees. Ironically, the paper wants to limit what reporters can say, on and off the job. According to this E&P article, the publisher wants to ban "disparagement of the company whether this occurs on or off company property."

Got that? So sitting around a table grousing about work with friends over a beer would be grounds for termination. Also included in the ban is a prohibition against operating a blog which "may reveal the employee's personal opinion" without company permission.

Nice to know who supports free expression.
