Staunton newspaper reporter fired
According to the Associated Press, sports writer Blair J. Parker has been fired at the Staunton News Leader for fabricating stories and plagiarizing online material. She was fired Tuesday. This follows the departure in recent months of two well-known reporters and a photographer who moved on to other jobs as well as other personnel changes. This month a one-half-off subscription special was offered, and local businesses have been offered one-half-off advertising rates.
