Mirthala Salinas and her bosses face up to cardinal journo sins

MsalinasThe tawdry story of the local TV anchor/reporter who was reporting on Hizzoner Antonio Villaraigosa even while having a romantic relationship with him — reporting the news of the breakup of his marriage, no less — has come to something of a close with the hammer coming down from the top brass at NBC Universal-owned Telemundo.

The upshot is a bunch of suspensions, reprimands and job reassignments for following a three-week probe of the sticky situation involving Mirthala Salinas (pictured), an anchor/correspondent for Telemundo O&O KVEA-TV, and Villaraigosa, whose smiling mug until recently was on local TV enough to earn him an AFTRA card. Here’s what I don’t understand: How can these folks come back to their jobs with any kind of editorial credibility whatsoever?
