Story About Boehner Gets Editor Fired

A associate editor has been fired for a story disparaging threats against Republican U.S. House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio. Victor Alvarez was fired Thursday. A former country club bartender in Ohio is charged with threatening to kill Boehner by poisoning his drink. Alvarez's story suggested Boehner had a drinking problem and questioned whether Boehner's liver could have filtered out the toxins. The website has issued an apology.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
