Hearst Asks Staff to Report Colleagues’ Controversial Posts to Management

From a Washington Post story by Will Sommer headlined “Hearst asks staff to report colleagues’ ‘controversial’ posts to management”:

A new social media policy at publishing giant Hearst Magazines warns staffers that even “liking” controversial content could result in their termination, and encourages telling on colleagues who post content that could violate the rules.

Hearst — whose magazine titles include Esquire, Cosmopolitan and Town & Country — sent staffers an email announcing the new restrictions, which were detailed in an internal document that employees were encouraged to sign.
