In the midst of buyouts and layoffs at Belo, Macarena Hernández has left the Dallas Morning News. She told Richard Prince’s journal-isms that she felt the priorities of the newspaper business are elsewhere.
The 34 yr-old Macarena said she resigned in June, before the buyout offer. She left the paper on August 27 to become an International Reporting Project fellow at Johns Hopkins University’s Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies.
Macarena is the journalist whose work was plagiarzied by the NYT’s Jayson Blair in 2003.
