This article has listed just a few examples of an extensive list of negative issues that the posting of this information is going to cause many of your current Times Free Press customers (who also happen to be TVA employees) but I have yet to understand what the "positives" are by posting this sensitive information. What benefits will come from providing this level of information? Will the benefits outweigh the problems that the release of this information will cause to a large amount of people? Would you feel comfortable if everyone's salary at your office or church was released?
Would the newspaper not consider simply posting this information by title and salary range - this would provide the desired transparency while protecting employee personal information. I do not understand why the inclusion of employee specific names will provide any reasonable benefit to those who are interested in the information.
As a subscriber to your newspaper, I have never understood why TVA seems to typically be portrayed in a negative manner, considering the amount of service that their hard-working employees put in to make sure "the lights stay on" for those in the Valley. If this sensitive information is posted (as your articles states), this will help my decision to maintain or cancel my support of this local newspaper as I'm sure many others will feel the same.
