As a former news editor at The Orange County Register, I found R. Scott Moxley's story about former Register reporter Kate Berry interesting but not surprising ("Survey Says: 'You're Screwed!'" March 15). The Register is a place where paranoia is normal, favoritism is way in your face and your best survival instinct is flight. That Tonnie Katz would commission a confidential survey and change the rules when someone's answers make her and her minions anxious is the kind of insidious behavior that passes for normal. Every year brought a new management program, full of helter-skelter whims that distracted people from doing the real job of reporting news.
