Now that news of Edward Greenspon’s departure from from the editorial helm of The Globe and Mail is being widely circulated (see Phillip Crawley’s memo below), word is getting around that he may have been pushed. Kind speculation suggests Greenspon resisted further cuts to the Globe newsroom, which has already been hit by layoffs. Maclean’s writer Paul Wells, outraged less by the corporate shuffle than by the goddawful writing in the memo, had some fun at Crawley’s expense. Newsrooms can be vicious places.
