The soap opera at the News-Press continues

An article in the Daily Nexus, the college paper, reveals that the atmosphere in the newsroom is stressful and edgy, somebody placed an R.I.P. wreath on the door of the building, and a community rally is planned to protest what is happening at the paper.

Also, there is an unpublished News-Press article about what happened, which contains this bit of new information:

… Todd said that, for him, the final straw happened last week when Armstrong told a reporter to slant a news article to a certain angle. The article was about a Carpenteria city councilwoman who was resigning after 16 years. He said Armstrong told the writer to focus on two issues his editorials had previously attacked the councilwoman for.
