    Editor fired...connected to being republican???


    Thought this was interesting. Whether or not is is the actual reason for the firing is not known:

    PLAYGIRL editor-in-chief Michele Zipp has been stripped of her duties after she revealed how she voted Republican in the 2004 election.
    Zipp, in an e-mail, claims she was fired after an onslaught of liberal backlash.

    "Hello Drudge,
    "After your coverage of my article about coming out and voting Republican, I did receive many letters of support from fellow Republican voters, but it was not without repercussions. Criticism from the liberal left ensued. A few days after the onslaught of liberal backlash, I was released from my duties at Playgirl magazine.

    "After underlings expressed their disinterest of working for an outed Republican editor, I have a strong suspicion that my position was no longer valued by Playgirl executives. I also received a phone call from a leading official from Playgirl magazine, in which he stated with a laugh, "I wouldn't have hired you if I knew you were a Republican.

    "I just wanted to let you know of the fear the liberal left has about a woman with power possessing Republican views."

    Maybe it also had something to do with her command of the English language. After all she was supposed to be an editor.

    "Disinterest" is a perfectly fine word, and an appropriate one in context (although pairing it with "of" doesn't exactly display a pro's grasp of language).

    That said, an editor In CHIEF doesn't really need language skills, beyond what's required to order others around....

    Firing her is a stupid move by people threatened by political difference, but so is claiming to be an intimidating "woman with power." Sheesh, you [she] worked for PLAYGIRL. Get over yourself.

    no it's not. she's using disinterest to mean 'not interested' in a sentence that doesn't make any sense, even though disinterest means indifference.

    okay, yes, she used "disinterest of" improperly - she should have used "disinclination to".

    Editor-IN-CHIEF, remember? Self-importance is almost required for the position...
