03/22/10 Hearst Newspaper Editor David McCumber Still Has Not Had The Journalistic Balls To Explain Why He Fired Greenwich Time Reporter Teri Buhl

Connecticut Reporter's Firing Draws Scrutiny

Media Matters for America

After firing reporter and blogger Teri Buhl, the Greenwich Time -- a Hearst newspaper in suburban Connecticut -- has come under fire from several sources, mostly fellow bloggers and reporters, who claimed her dismissal might have been retribution for reporting on some higher-end subjects.

Felix Salmon, a Reuters reporter who blogged about the incident, claims Buhl was let go for angering Fox Business Channel biggie Charles Gasparino and Trader Monthly Publisher Randall Lane: "What's worse, the reporter in question, Teri Buhl, hasn't just been fired from her job at Greenwich Time, a Hearst newspaper in Connecticut; her entire archive of blog entries there has disappeared, leaving only a message saying 'This blog has been archived or suspended'. It's as though Hearst wanted not only to fire her, but to make it seem as though they'd never hired her - although there is still an archive of stories she wrote for the newspaper itself.".....
