Journos sacked in Hong Kong

Press Gazette:
Irreverent farewell front pages are as much a part of journalistic culture as messy desks and bad pay.

But the new editor of the South China Morning Post, Mark Clifford, didn't see the funny side when colleagues prepared a front page for Sunday Morning Post editor Niall Fraser headlined: "You're a c**t, but you're a good c**t."

Two subs — Trevor Willison, who is British, and Australian Paul Ruffini — have been sacked over the affair. Now around 80 newsroom staffers, including many expatriate Britons, have signed a no-confidence motion in Clifford, an American who has been in charge of Hong Kong's biggest English-language daily for seven months...

One insider said: "The leaving page (as they usually do) included a number of digs at the management but was seen as generally pretty harmless. "What apparently upset Clifford was the use of the word c*** under the SMP masthead (with asterisks included, I should point out) and some mildy derogatory references to the newspaper's deputy editor, a Chinese woman by the name of Fanny Fung."

The c**t in this is Clifford, who is well known in Hong Kong as the most abysmal manager possible. Detested wherever he has worked, he is a disaster as a boss. He shoulda stayed a hack but loves the power and money he gets from kissing up to the local tycoons.
