Freedom of the Press
Tom Casey, reporter for the Register-Star, has been fired, allegedly because he didn't think the fact that Alderman John Friedman (Third Ward), on a couple of occasions, exercised his right not to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance at Common Council meetings was news. (Gossips didn't think it was news either.) Sam Pratt has the story on his blog: "Firing roils the Register."
