Wendy fires her union head

The unraveling of the Santa Barbara News-Press continues. The paper has fired 21-year veteran reporter Melinda Burns, one of the few journalists to stay on after the Wendy McCaw meltdown, after she led the recent successful union organizing vote. Editor & Publisher says Burns is the 28th staffer to leave since McCaw's ethically questionable practices led respected editor Jerry Roberts to resign. Also today, E&P reported that News-Press circulation fell 4.6% to 39,323 in the past six months.
