Osberg lectured Platt on inappropriate gift

    Among the reservations staffers and readers of the Daily News have about the appointment of former Philly mag editor Larry Platt is a report about Platt giving a rather private — and disgusting — gift to another former staffer at the magazine.
    Ponyter’s Jim Romenesko reports Philadelphia Media Network CEO and Publisher Greg Osberg had a little chat with Platt about office behavior. The incident in which Platt gave a fellow employee a rather private photo involving a cyst, won’t be happening inside the office of 400 N. Broad.

    A conversation about genitalia doesn’t really seem like most people’s idea about getting off on the right foot.
