  •  Do they fire columnists for voicing their views? (6+ / 0-)

    It seems to me this job is different from a regular reporter. You were hired to blog, which by definition means you offer your views.

    Since the boss said your condition for employment was agree to be gagged, not for your contribution (which still is not wrong in this case in my opinion), I think he left himself open for LOTS of criticism.

    Good luck getting this in E&P and other journalistic publications, organizations.

    I hope this backfires on the candidate too! What a jerk. If he can't take the heat, he is in the wrong job!
