Yahoo News reports:

The firing of Meghan Mangrum, a former education reporter for The Dallas Morning News, comes after she spotted a Feb. 11 tweet from Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson [photo] that alleged the local media had “no interest” in reporting on a drop in violent crime numbers in the city.

Johnson wrote the tweet despite multiple media outlets – including The Dallas Morning News – covering the drop. “Bruh, national news is always going to chase the trend. Cultivate relationships with quality local news partnerships,” Mangrum wrote.

Mangrum, who is white, claimed that the executive editor at the paper, who is Black, later asked if she would use the word if Johnson was white.
