The Struggle Sessions Are Real

It’s early yet, but last week may go down as the week that the journalism industry lost its damn fool mind. You’ve heard (too much!) about the exhaustive WTFery at The New York Times, but here are some other cases making the news:

* Philadelphia Inquirer Editor Stan Wischnowski resigned Saturday after a staff revolt stemming from an opinion piece headlined “Buildings Matter, Too.”

* Variety Editor-in-Chief Claudia Eller was placed on administrative leave after she (a) wrote a self-critical column about not doing enough to diversify her newsroom, then (b) called one of her subsequent you’re-still-not-doing-enough critics “bitter.”
