Editor & Publisher has reported that Tom Fiedler has been named as the new dean of the Boston University School of Communications.
The press release takes Fiedler's darkest hour and attempts to make it into a shining accomplishment:
"As the newspaper’s executive editor, Fiedler was a stickler for journalism ethics, particularly after reporters working for The Herald’s Spanish-language sister publication, El Nuevo Herald, were caught moonlighting for a US-government-owned, anti-Castro news service in 2006," the BU release added.As I documented here, the actual journalism produced during the "Marti Moonlighters" episode was shoddy, poorly investigated and poorly edited. It ended up causing Fiedler's boss his job and Fiedler himself left in the aftermath.
No word on whether the chihuahuas will follow him to his new post.
