So, I get the First Amendment thing, and I get the Freedom of Information Act thing, but as a journalist you've failed in conveying the importance of the story here! You seem to be exercising your legal right for the sake of exercising your legal right. Where's the greater good for society in publishing TVA salaries? Do you think it will make my electric bill go down? For that matter, where's the greater good in doing this for the TFP? Do you think it will make your readership go up? Nope. This is a lose-lose if the TFP follows through. The individual hard-working men and women of TVA (and for the record I am not one) could at a minimum face embarassment, and the TFP will at a minimum lose subscribers (including me). Publish titles and salaries if you must, but not names and salaries. I agree with others that the latter represents a violation of privacy and benefits no one, including the TFP! Exercise some corporate responsibility here; do the right thing; be a good neighbor! Don't publish names and salaries.
