The university, the blogger, and the US Attorney: A curious tale from Alabama

My latest investigative piece for Raw Story concerns the abrupt and unexplained firing of Roger Shuler, a former editor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and a prominent critic of public corruption. Shuler suspects that some of the targets of his blog-based reporting may have pressured UAB into firing him after 19 years with the organization.

Roger Shuler [in the hope you may read this blog],

I can't give you more than my moral support, but to the extent that it means anything I support you as fully as I can. I've been around long enough to know the difference between a disgruntled former employee and one who gets railroaded for partisan reasons.

It takes a lot of courage and fortitude, not to mention money and a good lawyer, to defend one's rights against a formidable institution like UAB. It also takes a lot of supporters. Please count me as one. normanDOTcosta1ATmaristDOTedu

Lindsay: Great reporting for Raw Story!
