Charleston Daily Mail fires writer who called Michael Brown an animal that was put down [View all]

Source: JimRomenesko.com

Charleston Daily Mail has fired Don Surber over his blog post calling Michael Brown an ďanimalĒ that was put down.

Editor and publisher Brad McElhinny says of his dismissed staffer:

He selected words that were unfortunate, inflammatory and, in our view, inexcusable.

Itís his own blog, but still, heís known as a Daily Mail editorial columnist and many readers seemed to perceive the views stated to reflect on the Daily Mailís editorial policy.

They donít. And this newspaper is working to rebuild the communityís trust.
