Fired News-Press Worker’s Victory Lap Captured on Google

Videographer Larry Nimmer Memorializes NLRB Decision Press Conference Online


Larry Nimmer’s 29-minute video of the press conference held by the former News-Press workers captures their joy in the decision made by Judge Kocol on December 26, 2007.

There was some happy people, heart-felt vindication, and a palpable good vibe. It’s kinda fun to scan the crowd and pick out the faces behind the names in so many bylines past and present. And the looming edifice of the News-Press building never loses its ironic punch.

Congrats to the former staff, and thanks to Nimmer for the Citizen Journalism.
