It’s big news today that Henry Norr was fired by the San Francisco Chronicle for filing a false time card. Scott Rosenberg puts this in perspective today, basically saying that it’s standard practice for reporters to fill out a time card that says they work a regular day job and then work the hours that are most conducive to producing the kinds of stories that they’re assigned. Norr, of course, claimed to be out sick when he was really out protesting and getting thrown in jail, but that’s a pretty flimsy excuse for firing a guy.
