Jared Paul Stern, 3 Others Out at Page Six

jared_paul_stern_out.jpgFrom this morning’s Daily News:

The New York Post‘s Page Six is terminating all freelance employees in a housecleaning triggered by the payola scandal surrounding the embattled gossip column. …

Freelance reporters Fernando Gil, Lisa Marsh, Christopher Tennant and Jared Paul Stern are the byline staffers who are being sacked.

I thought the idea was JPS* didn’t get a byline. In any event, it’s a housecleaning that, like this week’s shuffling at the Village Voice, was bound to happen.

* Does this mean we can finally retire JPS’s floating head?
