The irony is Feder may well be on the chopping block at the Sun Times.
The paper is rumored to be making more newsroom cuts but Marotti
quitting has helped cut payroll some as he was making 500K. The open
letter to Marotti by Roger Ebert was astonishing to see in print.

In fairness the Sun Times was raped by Conrad Black and they actually
had to sell their building on Wabash to Donald Trump to stay afloat.
Their home delivery is now handled by the Tribune and they are hanging
on by a thread as is the Herald. The paper has never really recovered
from the messy situation caused by the Field brothers who couldn't
stand each other and they liquidated their holdings in print and
broadcasting (in fact closed Channel 48 in Philly because they
couldn't wait for a buyer).
