Philly Inquirer fires Stephen A.

Not that even matters, because he still has his national ESPN Radio show, he’s a regular on ESPN’s NBA Shootaround and for some reason is a new expert of politics, but for the sake of news, the Philadelphia Inquirer fired Stephen A. Smith today, months after stripping him of his column and demoting him to a GA reporter.

Some people think this is big news, partly because of their distaste for the outspoken, brash Smith. But to me, this is a non-issue. Sure, that’s one less black reporter/columnist in the newsroom, but if you think he’s worried about losing his little newspaper gig, you’re fooling yourself.

 He’ll be just fine.
