Hearne got word that some folks at the Star weren't happy that the Star hired an outside editor.
"But a lot of us are a little bit upset because we cut so many jobs in editorial, but we hired outside for an editor for that," Hearne quotes one staffer as saying.
But a little Google search shows there is a magazine for moms called "M" in the San Francisco bay area. It's for moms. Click here for the web site.
From their web site, here is what is the bay area "M" is all about:
M is smart and practical with information and expert advice on family and relationships, health & fitness, and childhood education and development. M is sassy and edgy with stories, opinions, and perspectives from every mom’s point of view. M is stylish and sophisticated with tips on beauty, fashion, food, and entertaining. M is all about you.
Maybe it's just a coincidence. But on the other hand, maybe the reason the Star is using an outside editor is because there is already an editor in the bay area. Would the Star piggy back off another "M" magazine for moms? We'll find out the real story soon enough; Hearne says he'll have more later.
