When I first saw this story (different thread) I was going to joke that he must have mentioned voting for a Republican, once, back in the 70s. That's probably a fire-able offense.

Turns out the truth may be quite similar.

In an order that many inside the company felt was an unnecessary use of resources, Mr. Griffin insisted that all Time Inc. magazines — which include Sports Illustrated, People, Entertainment Weekly and Fortune — run mastheads, a listing of the magazine’s staff, that carried his name first. When Time Inc. magazines ran mastheads in the past, they typically listed top editors’ names first.

Sounds like he was an a-hole ego who just happened to be Catholic.

Mr. Griffin’s selection as chief executive of Time Inc., the world’s largest magazine publisher, surprised many in the industry when the appointment was announced in August. Mr. Griffin had been head of the magazine division at Meredith, the Des Moines-based publisher of magazines like Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle and Ladies Home Journal.

Time could not deal with an executive who actually knew how to make a profit.

It looks like it is better to keep the environment at this Liberal bastion pure than to have a hieratic embarrassing the cocktail circuit crowd and making this rag profitable. Good luck in the unemployment line Time employees.

I think he was fired for trying to straighten things out. None of the regulars at Time wanted things straightened out. They want to continue doing business as usual—until the whole thing collapses.
