Late arrival: D-G boys' club

Posted By on Mon, Feb 18, 2008 at 8:23 PM

Several days after the fact comes a long post by someone who claims to be a member of the Democrat-Gazette staff with extensive comment on the resignation last week of state editor Marilyn Mitchell and her complaints about sexism at the paper. For the record: We noted in the original post of e-mails that Mitchell is not a popular figure at the paper. Also, you can never know, but I'd guess 1) that it indeed is from a D-G staffer; 2) it's a reasonably reliable account; 3) the writer is a relative newcomer. (Bill Simmons is a vet, but he hasn't been at the D-G 30 to 40 years.)

 

Check it out at the end of the comments on the original post.
