The Arizona Daily Star was within its rights to fire a reporter for what it saw as unprofessional tweets, The National Labor Relations Board says. The offenses in question included criticizing one of the paper’s headlines via Twitter and later — after being warned by HR — making comments about Tucson’s homicide rates. The reporter also retweeted a local television news station Twitter post, noting a misspelled word in it and calling them “stupid TV people.” The NLRB said the actions of the unnamed crime and safety beat reporter qualified as “misconduct” that justified firing.
