Editor & Publisher: “Former Miami Herald Publisher Jesus Diaz Jr., who announced his resignation Tuesday in the wake of the recent uproar over reporters accepting payments from government-sponsored broadcasts outlet, actually quit two weeks ago, the paper reported Wednesday. His earlier departure plan stemmed from a ‘blow-up’ over a related column by Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen.”
The question now is whether any of Hiaasen’s satirical novels will cause any fiction publishers to resign.
