One commenter mentions Zieman subverted the paper's Nepotism policy:
What is so sad about it is The Star implemented that Nepotism policy for the sole purpose of breaking up the Unions. Now this scumbag circumvents it for his own purposes. Just shows the value of a Capital Cities re-tread.Another reader noticed Rhonda Lokeman is still listed on the KC Star site as a columnist like the other regular KC Star columnists.
I don't care what he says. If you go to the Star's web site and cursor over to Opinion and then check under Columnists you see Rhonda Chriss Lokeman right in between Yale Ongabonga and Miriam Pepper. He can pretend all day long that she isn't still there, but if they carry her name they own her.Another reader thinks Zieman blew off McClatchy headquarters:
According to the articles on Bottomline she was an employee. Zieman was told by headquarter at McClatchy to get rid of her. He then found a way to keep her. Zieman can say whatever he wants but go back to where he became a publisher and look at the facts. Facts Man Facts. Can they please be honest about something there at The Red Star?Another reader doubts Rhonda Lokeman is published in any other newspapers:
Where else does her column run since they claim it's national.Another reader has the same question:
OK what other paper does her column run in????Previous:
