Turner Broadcasting agrees to pay $2 million for bomb scare but leaves the contract employees out to dry.

From the Boston Globe turner is paying 2 million dollars to the city of Boston which “The deal frees Turner Broadcasting, the parent company of the Cartoon Network, and the New York marketing company the Cartoon Network hired, Interference Inc., of any criminal or civil liability for the episode.” Yet the deal leaves the actual people they hired to place the ads around town on the hook for a felony placing a hoax device and misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct. Now I didn’t follow this that closely so the disorderly may be a valid charge, but Turner should not have settled unless they dropped the felony charges against these two guys. Instead they covered their own asses and left their contractors out to dry.
