Allah sends the link to this story about a reporter fired for posting anonymous comments on the Internet:
A daily newspaper fired its courthouse reporter after he posted anonymous opinions on the public forum portion of the publication’s Web site, including comments critical of his own employer, the reporter said.
Justin Quinn said he was fired last month from the Lancaster Intelligencer Journal, where he had worked for more than six years. He declined to discuss the content of his postings.
Editor Ray Shaw confirmed that Quinn no longer worked at the newspaper but declined to comment further on a personnel matter.
Wow. Maybe Hiltzik did get off easy.
