TD Dismisses Reporter
Saturday, May 27, 2006 :::
The RTD has fired reporter Paul Bradley for fabricating portions of a May 17th story on the reaction among Herndon residents to a speech by the President on immigration:
Bradley was dismissed yesterday as a Times-Dispatch employee. A further examination will continue with an outside consultant reviewing his work over recent years.
Integrity is a core value at The Times-Dispatch, and anything less in gathering and reporting the news is unacceptable.
I'm not familiar with the story (it ran while I was out of the country), so I can't comment on the specifics. But it does seem the TD moved very quickly in this matter.
It also puts this item from Shaun in a slightly different perspective.
