Reuters media critic Jack Shafer is out
Media critic Jack Shafer announced last night that he is leaving Reuters after being let go along with possibly 55 others. As for Shafer's next destination, it's anybody's guess, but it's safe to say there won't be a dearth of offers.
Regarding the immediate future, however, Shafer tells Capital New York, "This was news to me in the early part of this week, and I don’t really have any plans. I got a book review assignment today, but that was from somebody who didn’t even know that I’d been laid off from Reuters, so my next plans, I think, are to read a book and write a review."
