Nicely done. On the other hand, I’m glad he’s wealthy enough to afford to resign over principles- many writers can’t.

I doubt he’s wealthy. The piece mentions he was bankrupted because of a libel lawsuit — which he *won* — brought against him by the same Vegas honcho he was forbidden to write about.

Well, yeah. And that’s why so many newspapers turned into recyclers of press releases. Which was killing them off well before Internet newsfeeds.

They will never, ever believe that, though. It’s always someone else’s fault they were out-competed — not that they refused to be competitive because they had no interest in what the audience wanted, only what was cheapest or easiest or safest to churn out, and telling themselves that was what the audience was demanding.
