WNYC Radio Was Sued For Firing Fred Mogul For Using AP Copy He Shows NYT Used It Too

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 4 –Fred Mogul's firing by the public radio station WNYC has given rise to a lawsuit.

On June 4 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which Inner City Press covers daily along with the United Nations from which it is banned for its reporting, SAG-AFSTRA filed a lawsuit against WNYC.

  It was 4:54 pm on a Friday when the case was entered in the docket, where Inner City Press found it.

  The complaint says WNYC failed to provide Mogul with contractually required severance payments after wrongfully discharging Mogul without cause. 

 After Audrey Cooper became editor in chief of WNYC, Mogul was fired, allegedly for using AP copy in his radio reports, accepted at the time. WNYC refused to arbitrate, and now has been sued.

Now Mogul has filed an amended complaint, showing for example how the New York Times (and WBUR and NRCBoston) used the AP story; he has also opposed WNYC filing a sur-reply. Inner City Press intends to follow this and other case.

 This case is SAG-AFSTRA, New York Local v. New York Public Radio, 21-cv-4972 (Unassigned)
