editor_suspended.jpgVietnam veteran Tim Mahoney, a part-time copy editor of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, was suspended for three days without pay for attending a peace march in September.
Constistution? What Constitution?
The demonstration, which attracted upward of 100,000 people to the nation’s capitol, was one of the largest such gatherings since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
He was suspended from work for three days without pay, according to the Minneapolis/St Paul CityPages site. In addition, Mahoney was informed that he would no longer be allowed to edit any stories about the invasion and occupation of Iraq. It was also made clear, in a letter written by senior editor Mike Bulger, that participation in any similar political activities would result in his termination.
So I guess the editor thinks that Mahoney can’t be objective about the war because he is against it. And let’s see, what side do you think the editor is on?
