ABC News has pink-slipped the producer in charge of the botched John Stossel 20/20
story on organic foods but not for the role he played in the controversial report. According to The Hollywood Reporter
, David Fitzpatrick
who had been suspended for 30 days without pay for the debacle was fired for having produced a story for HBO's Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel
during his time off. Fitzpatrick's contract does not allow him to work for a non-ABC outlet without the network's approval.
