Reporter Fired for Wearing Obama T-Shirt to Rally

Detroit news radio station WWJ-AM (950) has fired reporter Karen Dinkins after she wore a Barack Obama T-shirt while covering a presidential rally. Dinkins told the Detroit Free Press she was surprised the news media considered her firing a story. She had worked at WWJ for 13 years. Georgeann Herbert, director of programming, issued this statement: "WWJ Newsradio 950 Believes that our credibility with our listeners rests on the independence of our newsroom staff. WWJ does not favor any candidate, party or issue. While we encourage employees to exercise their rights as citizens, we expect them to be on guard against any actual or perceived conflict of interest when covering news stories."
