Blair Snitch Project Update: Rick Blair, outta here

“In a few weeks, I’m outta here,” suspended Times journo Rick Bragg tells the Washington Post.
“I will take it from a stringer. I will take it from an intern. I will take it from a news assistant. If a clerk does an interview for me, I will use it. I’m going to send people to sit in for me if I don’t have time to be there. It is not unusual to send someone to conduct an interview you don’t have time to conduct. It’s what we do.
“And this insanity — this bizarre atmosphere we’re moving through as if in a dream — we’re being made to feel ashamed for what was routine. . . . Reporters are being bad-mouthed daily. I hate it. It makes me sick.”
