[UPDATED] Post-Gazette explains today’s feature on fired CBC host (it was printed Oct. 23)


Jian Ghomeshi was fired by the CBC last Sunday. This positive Post-Gazette feature about him, which went online October 19, runs in the November 2 “Sunday Extra” edition.

Update – The paper explains what happened:

Although the Post-Gazette’s Sunday Extra, a publication distributed as a promotion to non-subscribers, was distributed Nov. 2, it was prepared and laid out on October 22 and printed on October 23. The allegations against Ghomeshi surfaced on October 26. At the next printing of the Sunday Extra the PG will provide a clarifying note explaining these circumstances.
