At Reuters, a New Book and a Lost Job (Fired for Anti-Coulter Book?)

On Tuesday, Joe Maguire, one of two editors in charge of markets coverage at Reuters, handed his bosses the galleys of his new book, Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter. On Wednesday, Mr. Maguire discovered he would have plenty of free time to promote his book, which comes out this week. Neither side in this dispute would say that he was fired.

There was a difference of opinion about the approval I received to write this book, Mr. Maguire said. I thought I had met the conditions, and proceeded accordingly. As a result, I no longer work there.

Mr. Maguire, who joined Reuters in April, said the book looks at Ann Coulters arguments, and deconstructs them to show how misguided they can be.

He added: When the political discourse has dropped to the unfathomable levels it has, someone has to say this is wrong.

He said he was unable to interview Ms. Coulter for the book, or even get her to return e-mail or phone messages left through her publicist.

5. I consider the editors of Reuters to be neo-liberal.

They generally support the economics of the neo-cons.
They generally support the social issues of liberals.
But, money comes first so they aren't allowed to say too much of anything bad about neo-cons.
