The right way to treat your boss

The pros at Stars and Stripes have asked (as this memo from Poynter shows) for the acting publisher's head after he refused to turn over documents related to some fucked up partnership with a PR firm.

Here's an excerpt: "I want to inform you that the overseas bureau chiefs Joe, Marni, Tom Skeen, Tim Flack, Chris Carlson and I ­have called for Max Lederer to step down as acting publisher ... In the letters, we explained that by failing to release the documents, he is making every reporter's job that much harder. If we can't get our own people to release public documents, why should we expect the military to cooperate?"

Semper fi.
