This sounds like Tribune paranoia (although the ST also used to periodically do that sort of thing.) And, really, to consider not capitalizing "state" in "state of Illinois" a typo? That's ridiculous. In my day, she said, acting like the old fart she is, even a misquote merited a correction and a "hey, don't do it again," from lower management. I really hate professional paranoia.

While some of the statements made by Chicago Newspaper Guild made me wonder

As a Guild, we always have to take a strong stance against the managerial practice of trying to supplant the people they've hired on staff. But part of the frustration we have is that managements who are happy to misuse their own staff are also happy to misuse stringers: they'll cut the pay rates because they can, they'll be arbitrary in the way they respond to complaints (as you know), and they do it because they know stringers have no recourse. Many stringers work just as hard for a company as the company's own staff - but they don't have the benefit of a decent salary or, well, benefits.
