Chronicle Brief on Editor Changes

Excerpt from Chronicle brief in today’s paper:

AsianWeek Editor Samson Wong has been removed as editor in chief of the publication and reassigned as a result of the furor that followed publication in late February of a column titled “Why I Hate Blacks.” Wong has been reassigned to a job of “senior editorial consultant,” AsianWeek president James Fang said Friday night.

“Basically, his job now will be to do work in the community — outreach — and to continue to do his column,” Fang said.

While AsianWeek looks for a successor, Ted Fang, who had been editor at large, will fill the paper’s top editorial position, said his brother, James Fang.
