Yesterday was ousted Viacom CEO Tom Freston's last day in the office. It was, uhm, emotional. Gawker has some nice pictures up of Freston's final stroll out the lobby of his office flanked by chanting, applauding and weeping employees. Different pictures up on the Huffington Post.
We’re sure it’s a comfort to Tom to know that he is loved by so many of his former employees. But not quite a comforting as lying down on the $60 million pile of money he’s getting as he’s pushed out the door.
