I’m a bit late coming to this, but you’ll forgive me because we’re old friends. (Right?) An alert FrontBurnervian points us to this story about a dust-up in Denver. Until recently, Miles Moffeit was a stud reporter at the Denver Post, but he quit to come work for the investigative team at the Morning News. The dust-up centered on some comments Moffeit made to the Westword about why he was jumping ship for the News. He said one of the reasons he wanted to come to Dallas was because the paper here was in good shape financially — and the one he was working for wasn’t. Bear in mind that Moffeit had been a business reporter for the Post. After his bosses read what he’d said, they told him to pack up his stuff and leave.
I like the cut of this guy’s jib. Moffeit used to work at the Times Herald and the Star-Telegram, so Dallas will be familiar to him. Welcome back, sir. We look forward to reading your strong words.
