Wow. must have been a very slow news day there, for them to post such a boring story. TV stations let people go all the time, so what is the big deal with this one?

Nobody wrote that it was a "big deal", those are your words. I would guess the reason for teh story is that the guy let go also wrote for the newspaper that wrote the story. I don't know how it works in your part of the country, but in Minneosta, it is generally written in the newspapers when one of the anchors (news, weather or sports) on the local television station is let go.

If it made the paper and news, then someone made it a big deal. It certainly wasnt me. In my area, they dont do stories about the people let go. Guess there is too many other things to do stories on, such as murder and other crimes.

Being in the paper doesn't necessarily make anything a 'big deal'. In Duluth, there aren't many murders and the crime rate in general is fairly low. It appears there is a difference of opionion on this matter. In Minnesota, the newspapers all have people who's beat is the media. They do stories on other media. This was one of those stories.
