To my friends:
As you know, I was fired by the Tribune Company/FoxCT for “inappropriate conduct.” Some of you may have seen transcripts of what were private chats on Facebook between consenting adults on my private time.
I had no idea this private conversation would be made public, but what I did was still wrong even if it had remained private.
This is a very difficult time for my family. I betrayed a trust with my wife and daughter which won’t be mended quickly. I have made promises to them I intend to keep.
Losing my job at FoxCT/Courant is also very difficult. You probably noticed I wrote about my work there with a smile on my face. I was proud to work there and proud of what we offered the public. It was the best job I ever held. I worked my butt off in gratitude.
I cannot say enough good about my colleagues and how proud I am of what we accomplished together.
I know my former bosses in Hartford and Chicago will see this. I am on my knees begging you reconsider your decision and please take me back. I am asking for another chance.
Thanks to all who’ve reached out to me via email and Twitter. Your words of encouragement and support at this very difficult time are appreciated. I hope I will be able to regain your trust.
I am grateful to you for the honor of your friendship.
