Doesn't explain why it took questions from a third party to alert Moos to the style Romenesko had used for years.

Salmon's take on (linked above) on the petty bureaucratic mindset fits better.

There's speculation that Poynter was trying to take down R's rep as he headed out the door, but I doubt they're so evil.

The Poynter folks have always been aware they live in a glass house; this time they erred on the side of overreaction.

I kinda wish Penn State had done the same.

From my dad, a retired journalism professor:

"I was puzzled by the Moos post. I've never had any trouble knowing exactly what Romenesko's sources are, and there is always a link (or more) to the original material."
