Quincy Media’s KTTC and reporter James Bunner parted ways last week after Bunner showed up to cover the Trump rally in Rochester, MN wearing a #MAGA hat.
The MMJ had been with the station for less than a year.
The picture that got him busted was taken by a photographer for the “Minneapolis Star-Tribune,” who then posted it online.
Social media chaos ensued.
In announcing Bunner’s firing, news director Noel Sederstrom noted that the station does not allow staff to cover stories while wearing clothing from political campaigns.
But on the station’s own Twitter feed Thursday, Bunner’s impending live shots were promoted with a picture of him holding the cap.
Does anybody actually review the content before posting?
Don’t go looking for the promotional tweet. It’s been deleted.
Bunner’s career isn’t over, by any stretch.
