Hearst made him an offer he could refuse

Looks like the Hearst Corp. is going to put out an online version of its Seattle paper after it fails to find a sucker to buy the damn thing.

They're making offers to select staffers now for the online operation, but they're cheap bastards, as illustrated by this reporter who said he declined the offer.

He said the offer increased his health insurance cost, cut his salary by an unspecified amount, matched his 401(k), required him to forgo his P-I severance pay, reduced his vacation accrual to zero and required him to give up overtime.
