Kansas City Reporters Told To Decide Among Themselves Who Gets Fired

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 at 3:10 PM

Apparently, management at the Kansas City Star doesn't want to have the blood on their hands regarding the firing of one of two reporters.

According to a report from media-watchdog Jim Romenesko's blog, reporters Karen Dillon and Dawn Bormann have been told that one of them has to go, and that they have to make the decision. From the story:

“Dillon has seniority, so she has the option of taking it or not taking it,” says a source. “And if she does, Dawn gets laid off. Dawn’s a great person but I think Karen will vote in favor of herself because she’s got teenage kids at home.”

An interesting thing to note is that Dillon is apparently the person who originally broke the news of the public indecency arrest of Paul "Pee-Wee Herman" Rubens back in 1991, recognizing his name while scanning through the police blotter in Sarasota, Fla.

Here's to hoping that this "Hunger Games"-like exercise comes to an amicable end soon.
