Over a yr after the ouster of the outlet’s prime editor amid misconduct accusations, negativity stays
Leisure Weekly, which fired its prime editor a yr in the past amid complaints about his racist and sexist feedback, is reeling from a brand new set of employees complaints, this time a couple of lack of editorial management and — as a bombshell e-mail despatched to prime editors alleged — declining requirements that the writer claims have “made a joke” of the publication.
Signed by “the elephant within the room,” the interior e-mail despatched to prime editors in early January and obtained by TheWrap mentioned the “writing at EW has gone downhill.” “Sure, web page hits are necessary,” reads the e-mail despatched to editor-in-chief Mary Margaret and at the least a half-dozen different staffers on the outlet, which features a month-to-month print journal in addition to a web site. “However persons are finally going to tune out if articles are poorly written. The out of context clickbait titles, posting out of context quotes… and movie evaluations that sound like paid-for PR items from studios fully make a joke of our journal and leisure journalism.”
