Associated Press (AP) gives a pink slip to Leslie Neuhaus for being “unethical” reporter.
March 14, 2007
A year and 52 days ago, Antony Mitchell, working for the Associated Press, was forced to leave Ethiopia after his impeccable journalistic works angered Ethiopian officials who accused him of “tarnishing the image of the country”.
The man who replaced Antony, Leslie Neuhaus, is expected to have a less dignified exit from Ethiopia. Leslie who called “some” opposition supporters in DC “scumbags” is forced to resign from AP in connection to the infamous comments. “Forced resignation” is the diplomatic parlance for being ” fired”.
