Quite the day

Today our most senior reporter was fired. The exact reasons why are spinning around the rumor mill, but essentially, he was fired for missing work to interview for another job. Outwardly, newsroom was rather macabre the rest of the day, but conversation and discussion was intense on a low-key level. Lots of people are considering the ramifications. Most noticeably, they are questioning what this means to the quality of our paper.

Journalists are interesting folks, and their set of morals and values have a tendency to clash rather than yield.

Quite the industry.
