Breaking: Grazer Section Killed–Martinez Out

The Los Angeles Times scrapped the special Sunday Current section, as was announced by publisher David Hiller at a meeting this morning.

Editor Andres Martinez resigned, blogging:

David Hiller’s decision to kill the Brian Grazer section this Sunday makes my continued tenure as Los Angeles Times editorial page editor untenable. The person in this job needs to have an unimpeachable integrity, and Hiller’s decision amounts to a vote of no confidence in my continued leadership.
