Tribune fires LATIMES publisher. about damn time.
Media: I could care less about Tribune or the LA TIMES, but the one thing that irked me about a month ago was this situation.
|Los Angeles Times newsrooms staffers, including many who had signed a petition just weeks ago supporting Publisher Jeff Johnson and Editor Dean Baquet's stand against more budget cuts, greeted today's announcement of Johnson's firing with sadness and concern. Although some were waiting to see what incoming publisher David Hiller of the Chicago Tribune would do, most took Johnson's forced resignation so shortly after his public stand as a sign that owner Tribune Co. would likely make the cuts that have been in the pipeline.|
