Cincy is Too Darn Close to Indy

An investigative business reporter at The Cincinnati Enquirer has been fired for no identifiable reason, according to Talking Biz News.

"Jim McNair, a well-known investigative business reporter who joined the Cincinnati Enquirer in 2001 from the Miami Herald during the Gannett’s paper’s attempt to beef up its business coverage, was fired from the paper last week, but was not given a good reason as to his dismissal."

Like The Indianapolis Star, The Enquirer is owned by Gannett (which launched the trial balloon of eliminating The Star's business section entirely a month or so ago).

Any similarity to the current situation in Cincy is probably not coincidental.
