A Hudson Register-Star reporter was fired after a disagreement over whether to mention in a story that a city alderman didn't stand for the pledge of allegiance, Sam Pratt reports (the reporter wanted to pull his byline after the mention was inserted). That in turn prompted the city editor and two other reporters to resign in protest, as well as a a protest letter from other staffers at the paper. Romenesko's picked up the story. And the Register-Star? It's posted a job ad for a reporter. [Sam Pratt] [Gossips of Rivertown] [Sam Pratt] [Romenesko] [Journalism Jobs]
