We’ll begin this story with a disclaimer: Hearst is a brand rightfully known for producing great products including a large portion of this country’s best magazines. Based on Mediabistro’s “Cubes” tour of the Hearst offices, we’d say the company also treats its employees well.
That said, Hearst
has a huge PR problem on its hands in the form of a big-news
lawsuit—and its lawyers have begun to prepare by contacting affected
parties in order to solicit positive testimony. We’re not quite sure
that will work.
