Gadi Dechter, author of the Baltimore City Paper's "Media Circus" column, will no longer write for the weekly. "Dechter did such a fine job reporting on The Sun ... over the past couple of years that the daily recently up and hired him," notes City Paper Editor Lee Gardner in this week's issue. (The editor's note is here, bottom of the page.) Most notably, in January Dechter exposed instances of plagiarism by veteran Sun columnist Michael Olesker, who then resigned.
