Lance Nixon has been named managing editor at the Pierre Capital Journal.
Long-time South Dakota news veteran Lance Nixon has been appointed managing editor of the Pierre Capital Journal.
Nixon, 48, is a native of Frederick. He earned bachelor?s and master?s degrees in journalism from South Dakota State University and also earned a master?s degree in English from the University of North Dakota while working at the Grand Forks Herald. He is a former Fulbright scholar to Finland, where he studied Finnish folklore.
You will remember that Nixon was dismissed from SDSU for questioning the ethics of his employers. As an editor who isn’t afraid to hold individuals accountable he will be a good addition to the Capital Journal.
If Nixon can be fired on the spot for something as small as questioning an inexpensive engraving on a relatively inexpensive piece of equipment, what protections are there for public employees in South Dakota who question the ethics of their employers?
