Scheer's mommy bails him out:
Bob Scheer has been hired by the San Francisco Chronicle. No big surprise. His position at the Times was "anointed" as one Times editor told me. Scheer's wife Narda Zachino was a top editor at the Times and looked after him. Some years ago, Zachino was demoted at the Times and moved to the San Francisco Chroncile where she can look after her hubby again: http://blogs.chronwatch.com/archives/2005/11/the_chrons_hiri.asp
If you can believe anything you read on MediaMatters, fired columnist Bob Scheer is blaming O'Reilly and me for getting him the ax in the first place. This despite his own son's report (see his article at Alternet) that the new publisher of the Los Angeles Times who fired him told intimates "I hate everything he writes." Of course, Scheer, like MediaMatters, will say anything to attack an enemy, even if one attack contradicts another. Thus when I fired Scheer from Ramparts magazine in 1969, he told one board director that I would turn the magazine into a "Trostkyite rag" and another that I would make it a Zionist mouthpiece. While he was sticking these knives into my back he told others that he was thinking of committing suicide as if to put that on my conscience. Scheer's alibis and threats (and columns) only work on the credulous, but then MediaMatters is a site for the credulous.
