Thread Name: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
Subject: RE: Bob Edwards removed from Morning Edition
I think he means SUSAN STAMBERG. Definitely not Terry Gross; all she does is puff pieces about authors and washed-up rock bands. Seldom a folk musician.
So what reason do they give for firing Bob Edwards?
I'm with you on the mealy mouthed "explanations" the big corps give, such as the classic Spend More Time with his Family ploy.
They sure came down hard on the NY Times when one of their reporters was writing phony stories. I'm sure Bob was guilty of anything like that.
Frankly, I still miss Robert MacNeil on PBS.
