Every so often someone just gets fed up enough to tell the truth about newspapers

Poynter has a good story about a managing editor who went public, quite undercover, to expose the new owners of his newspaper. Make sure, if you are interested in this topic, to read the links in the Poynter article to the actual essay in the newspaper.

As you can guess the managing editor did not last long at his job after this was published.

As en editor, I have to agree with those who say this guy committed a horrendous beach of professional ethics. I can't imagine him ever getting another job in today's environment.

As a human being who sees the same crap going on at the Boothies and mlive, I absolutely loved it!
