Walter Bird Jr. no longer with the SEN.
Following a link on Brent S. Abrahamson's blog, I learned that Walter Bird is no longer chief editor at the Southbridge Evening News.
According to his own account, he sent an email to the publisher of the SEN, Frank Chilinski, and was subsequently fired, Walter Bird,
"I had to see, every single day, how frustrated my reporters and other editors were. How angry and frustrated. And I shared all that. Ever since our co-owner died, I think my faith in our company and mission was slowly waning. I told Frank Chilinski, I either wanted to have a place with upper management, a voice for the editorial dept. or that I would appreciate a layoff and not be fired. I didn't think he'd do it over an e-mail, by having our CFO slide a printed copy of it across the desk to me, but that's how he chose to do it."
