Over at The Beachwood Reporter, independent blogger Steve Rhodes says that he has had some content taken down
from his paid NBC Chicago blog -- including some incidental content
about Michael Scott's death-- and has quit the gig in response to what
he perceives as editorial meddling. Michael Miner and Vocalo/WBEZ have
followed up on the controversy.
What do you think? Do you care how internal editorial and business decisions are made before the news gets to your eyeballs, or not? It's a big deal for those of us who produce content -- especially commentary and analysis -- but I have a big feeling that readers don't really care about it that much. (Remember when Catalyst took down my post about Ron Huberman revealing his sexual orientation the week after he was confirmed?)
