Doug Clifton testified that Cleveland Symphony conductor Franz Welser-Most "wasn't getting a fair break from the Plain Dealer -- and the Plain Dealer was personified by [music critic] Don Rosenberg." He said "this was not driven by a single event, but really was an accretion of things that Don (at left) wrote and things that I heard from the public which became a cause of concern for me." He retired in 2007 and let new editor Susan Goldberg deal with the "problem."
