Sayonara Editorial board: Cox cuts the brain dead

After their 5 editorials on who Gary Leitzell shouldn’t listen to, it looks like we won’t have to listen to the editorial board of Ellen Belcher, Martin Gottlieb and Scott Elliott anymore. Unfortunately, they were even scooped on their own demise:

The Dayton Daily News, owned by Cox Ohio Publishing, will be demoting 10 managers in the editorial department to staff/reporter positions.

Considering that the Cox flagship Atlanta Journal Constitution did away with its editorial board political endorsements back in October, it’s amazing that this trio of status-quo, incumbent-loving, losers managed to hang on much after their lame-o endorsement of Rhine McLin. This is the editorial board that had the nerve to say that “there is a disconnect between him and the real-world problems of a city hall” about Gary Leitzell, as he went on to win over her huge money and “connections” says that the people who were most out of touch were the editors who are now out of their jobs.

I guess their parting shot at me was the publication of the haters comments in Speak Up yesterday.

Welcome to the world of unpaid journalism Ellen, Martin, Scott- my readership has been growing for the last 4 years- too bad you can’t say the same. If you want to learn how to publish your own site, I teach a seminar monthly on how to do this: And, you’re welcome to try running for office as well- since you’re all experts at picking winners.

But, my personal editorial on the matter: You won’t be missed, elected, or employed. Hallelujah!
