I can’t believe I missed this. I’m glad Abu Aardvark picked it up:
Aljazeera reported that the editor-in-chief of the Jordanian newspaper
al Ghad, Imad al Hmoud, was fired by the paper’s administrative
council in light of the of al-Hilla bombing controversy.
Abu Aardvark also indicated that the section editor in which the
controversial story appeared had already resigned before this announcement. Ayman al Safadi, the former editor-in chief of the Jordan Times, then head of Jordan TV and most recently Jordan’s UN spokesman in Iraq, will replace Hmoud as al-Ghad’s editorial head.
The most fascinating part of any analysis of this whole scandal is how long gone the days are when Jordanian/Arab media could get away with publishing irresponsible material. Nowadays, everybody is watching!
