SB News-Press Editorial Page Editor is Gone

citizenmccaw.jpgTravis Armstrong editorial page editor at Santa Barbara News-Press, owner Wendy McCaw lackey, has been fired.

Barney Brantingham at the Santa Barbara Independent sums up the decline:

Since then about 100 people have quit or been fired for union activity-illegally fired, according to a judge’s decision. McCaw has spent millions battling the newsroom unionization brought on by her own behavior that fateful summer of discontent. Reporters and others felt they needed a union to help protect them against what they considered a tyrannical, capricious owner. The paper is now a hollow husk of what it was then, not only an instrument of McCaw’s libertarian-style ideology but a vehicle of vengeance against anyone on whom she fixes an angry eye.
