2 Cleveland Reporters Fired After Seeking Tickets to Jay Z Concert at Hillary Clinton Event
“WEWS Channel 5 ‘Good Morning Cleveland’ anchor Jackie Fernandez and meteorologist Somara Theodore are no longer with the station,” Joey Morona reported Tuesday for cleveland.com.
Scott Jones reported for his TV news tipsheet FTVLive Monday that the two “were fired after posting that they were standing in line to get free Jay Z tickets” for a get-out-the-vote concert for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton scheduled for Friday.
“Sources say that Fernandez and Theodore were both on the clock while waiting to get the tickets,” the FTVLive story continued.
“This happens just as corporate had posted a message on the Scripps in house website, telling employees to be extra careful of not participating in any political activities from now and until the election. . . .”
“We don’t discuss internal employee matters,” news director Jeff Harris said in a statement, Morona reported. “However, News 5 holds all of its journalists to the highest ethical standards.”
“It is important to the reputation of our station and to Scripps, our parent company, that our news coverage is fair and unbiased,” Harris said. “Those crucial qualities have been emphasized repeatedly during this contentious election season.
“We remind our journalists frequently to avoid even the appearance of support for any sides of this election. It is imperative that we maintain objectivity in the work we do to serve our communities in NE Ohio.”
“Harris said the station is still figuring out staffing for the morning show going forward.
“Fernandez and Theodore both arrived in Cleveland last summer. They were introduced as part of News 5’s ‘fresh and hip news team’ in splashy promos . . . ”
Legendary musician Stevie Wonder will perform in Philadelphia at a rally Friday for Clinton supporters, the campaign announced Wednesday, Jerry Gaul reported for PhillyVoice. “On Saturday, the campaign is hosting another get-out-the-vote performance that will feature pop singer Katy Perry. . . .”
