Reader: Someone ‘pulled a Cherry Hill’ in Cincinnati

I’m sorry to say I knew exactly what a reader meant when I opened my e-mail this morning to see a note about The Cincinnati Enquirer. “I heard from a few newsroom co-workers this morning that someone ‘pulled a Cherry Hill‘ in one of the newsroom restrooms (women’s) overnight,” the reader said. “I would not at all be surprised that tensions have boiled over here. Things have been very tense ever since the Enquirer started enforcing its time card policy all of the sudden (in response to Cherry Hill).”

Cincinnati staffers: Can you confirm — and add (tactfully!) any details? Leave a note in the comments section, below. Or use this link to e-mail your reply; see Tipsters Anonymous Policy in the green sidebar, upper right.

    I think the rumor started out that it was a disgruntled staffer, but a newsroom-wide email said that it was just an overflowing toilet clogged up by a flushed paper towel. But I guess that isn’t as interesting, right?

    The e-mail did blame it on someone stuffing not “a” paper towel but a bunch of paper towels down a toilet. But maybe the e-mail was a cover-up for what really happened. It is true though that there is a time-sheet crackdown that’s suspected to be a reax to the Cherry Hill flap over extra hours being worked without compensation. Compounding that was the discovery that some reporters in the biggest news department at the Enquirer had never handed in a time sheet and were scrambling to fill out ones going back for months if not years.
