Where I used to work, the attitude was "we can't afford the expense of finding
and assembling massive amounts of data that may be demanded by a subpoena,"
and also "we'd rather truthfully say we destroyed it." They were dead serious
about the expense. BTW, it also was a newspaper.

I do some freelance writing for a local newspaper here, and they have a
similar policy. Their attitude is "we'd rather truthfully say that we
destroyed it than have to pay a lawyer to contest a subpoena compelling
discovery." Not the way I'd choose to work, but there you go.
