Caitlyn Curran was fired from her freelance web producer job at WNYC after being pictured at the Occupy Wall Street protest, New York City blog Gothamist reported. WNYC is a New York City public radio station.
In the photo, Curran was holding a sign that reads “It’s wrong to create a mortgage-backed security filled with loans you know are going to fail so that you can sell it to a client who isn’t aware that you sabotaged it by intentionally picking the misleadingly rated loans most likely to be defaulted upon.”
After the photo went viral, Curran suggested she report a segment on WNYC about the incident, but her boss ended up firing her and accusing her of breaching journalism ethics, according to Gothamist.
