Moloney sacked

Journalist of the moment, Ed Moloney, has been sacked from his job on the Sunday Tribune newspaper, so reports the subscription only Irish News:

“Mr Maloney, who has reported for the paper for 16 years, said he was “shocked” when a letter from the paper’s outgoing editor Matt Cooper, terminating his contract, was delivered to his New York home. Speaking to the Irish News from New York, Mr Maloney last night said “basic natural justice” had been ignored and that he was taking legal advice.”

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
