Looks like the alliance of the Star and Jesse Brown on the Ghomeshi story has come apart

Jesse Brown writes in the Guardian:
"Writing on deadline, (Kevin) Donovan and I clashed frequently: I described our sources as 'credible'; he vetoed that phrasing, saying that it suggested The Star was taking their side. Instead, he described Ghomeshi’s accusers as 'educated and employed'; readers were rightly appalled. They asked if that meant we wouldn’t have believed the women if they had been uneducated and jobless. Donovan brushed off the angry letters, comments and tweets."
The whole story
The issue seems to be Kevin Donovan's decision to publish a book about the case. Brown's story describes their uneasy relationship.
