It takes a lot of nerve, but the Joplin Globe is back to publicizing everyone else's layoffs while sweeping its own under the rug.
In today's edition, in an article written by Wally Kennedy, the newspaper reports "fewer than 20 people in middle management at St. John's Regional Medical Center could be laid off this month."
And this is just a case of "could be." The Globe firings of at least 15 workers, including veteran reporter Mike Surbrugg, has still not been mentioned in the pages of the area's "newspaper of record." And we know for sure those people are unemployed.
As I have said before, it appears that firings are news when they happen at other businesses, but are a private concern when it comes to the Joplin Globe.
That is hypocrisy.
I would provide a link to the St. John's story for you, but as far as I can tell, it is only in the print edition.
