Remember Steve Smith, the high-profile former editor of the Spokane Spokesman-Review, who quit a few months back when orders came for yet another big budget/staff cut? Part of what he wound up doing after that was returning to his college stomping grounds at the University of Oregon, and helping out with the student newspaper there.
Only, “helping out” wasn’t quite the way some of the student journalists there saw it. What evolved was a fight, a walkout/strike by the student employees of the Daily Emerald paper, and finally a resignation by Smith.
A substantial rundown of the situation, a sad evolution, shows up at Oregon Media Insiders.Share on Facebook
