Fired for having a blog?

Okay, so I was reading ROB while waiting for a meeting the other day, and in the letters to the editor section someone had written in asking if they need to disclose to their employers that they write a blog. The answer, yes, but even still, you can be fired for it if you don't have some kind of written approval.

I would link to the article but you have to have a subscription to see it.

Then I came across this yesterday:

Apparently this blogger got fired from his day job - Producer at CNN, for his blog. He doesn't give much explanation but apparently it will be forthcoming.

So just a warning to you Duffy that you may want to reconsider the blog you were considering. And potentially this site too??? I don't know. I guess that goes for all of us.
