Sources: Tony Grossi Pulled from Browns Beat Over Randy Lerner Tweet (Updated)

Updated: For those saying that Randy Lerner called for Tony Grossi to be moved off the beat, here's an update. Sources tell Scene that, "Randy Lerner and the Browns had zero to do with it. The Plain Dealer acted independently." They never asked the Browns' opinion. They acted internally.

***

Multiple sources tell Scene Tony Grossi is no longer the Browns beat writer for the Plain Dealer as of today.

Last week, Grossi accidentally tweeted the following about Randy Lerner: "He is a pathetic figure, the most irrelevant billionaire in the world." He has lost his post as a result of that.

He was in hot water with his editors and bosses at the PD over the inadvertent tweet, which displayed a huge bias — hatred even — toward the Browns' owner.

There was an obvious question whether he could objectively continue to cover the beat, the answer to which came when the Plain Dealer weighed in today with the move.

 

This should be a lesson for you: Never, ever tell the truth about the hand that feeds you.
