I’d heard that Dallas Business Journal editor Kevin Bumgarner was fired today, so I called Lisa Bormaster, the publisher, to ask her about it. The first thing she said: “I find it ironic that the media think we’re news.” Me, I think when the top editorial person gets fired, that’s news. Anyway, Bormaster would not say that Bumgarner was fired. Her exact words: “Kevin is no longer with the company. We appreciate his service, and we wish him well in his future endeavors.” In other words, he was fired. Bumgarner had held the title since November 2007.
(I guess this means when Wick finally gets around to firing me, the Dallas Business Journal won’t even mention it on their website. Dangit.)
