At Reuters, Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Via Cader Books:

Reuters editor Joe Maguire “no longer works” for the wire service after giving his boss a galley of his forthcoming book Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter, though “neither side in this dispute would say that he was fired,” according to the NYT.

Reuters did “confirm that Mr. Maguire was granted conditional approval to write his book on Ms. Coulter.” In a statement trying to explain why he doesn’t work there any more, the service cited their principles of “integrity, independence and freedom from bias.” An employee who worked under Maguire says that when colleagues were told he was no longer employed, it was made clear they “weren’t allowed to ask why.”
