    Here’s why this editor’s words don’t really ring true: If the reporters’ work has been substandard for so long, why are they still around? Clearly, their work has been good enough for Reuters in the past. If the mission has been changed, then new training or workshops on new goals ought to be offered. If the reporter’s output doesnt change after that, then perhaps there’s a case to be made. But the current effort smacks of using an arcane office process to weed out reliable editorial personnel who probably draw higher salaries. They ought to be treated with more respect
