Chances are he makes money each tweet/article he does, and hes also keeping the masses who want an update every 10 minutes off his back. I kinda feel bad for him to be honest. Hes a in a tight spot.
I doubt very much he or any of the regular reporters are in a paid-by-the-story-or-tweet arrangement. They're salaried employees of Trib Media, not freelancers. They're also in no danger of losing their job most likely. They'll probably just be moved to report on other happenings when there's no CBA or Penguin news.
