MEDIA WATCHATE! Columnist Missing: What happened to Susan Yerkes?


Have you seen this woman? Susan Yerkes disappeared from the San Antonio Express-News a couple months ago. Her society onda reported women's affairs with a progressive, sassy, beat. Sus columns just disappeared one day with no explanation given. A reporter from the paper assured me that she was still alive, but seemed nervous just mentioning her name.

The chisme-mill says that Yerkes, a proud card-carrying feminista threatened by Executive Editor Bob Rivard with her job in the past, neglected to write about a party that retiring publisher Larry Walker hosted. Oops!

Another friend emailed the so-called Public Editor Bob Richter at the San Antonio Express-News on February 14th, 2007. The response from Richter was along the lines of "I don't know and I can't talk about it." This is from the Public Editor who's supposed to represent the readers.

With the disappearance of Yerkes, there are no out-feministas publishing columns at the paper anymore. Melissa Stoeltje, another excellent columnist, is now a reporter.

This is called media deregulation, gente. Profits at the expense of free speech.

When SAEN reporter Philip True went missing, the fearless editor was quick to head a search party and bring the bad guys to justice or so we are told in his recent true crime novel.

The disappearance of Susan Yerkes might provide the crusading editor with a great opportunity for a sizzling sequel.

Tip: he might start his quest in his own backyard.

The story about the party is pretty close to the truth. Accuracy was an issue. I would suggest using the phone book to assist you in your search.
