DORFMAN FIRED AS MONEY MAGAZINE COLUMNIST OVER SOURCES
Published January 4, 1996
Financial columnist Dan Dorfman has been fired by Money magazine over his refusal to provide Time Warner officials with the identity of his sources. Dorfman, whose market reports sometimes quote anonymous sources, said Time Warner made demands regarding his confidential sources that "no responsible reporter can accept." He had been on a leave of absence since October after an article in Business Week "raised questions about [his] journalistic practices." Dorfman will continue to work as a stock market commentator on CNBC television (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 1/4).
