An editor at the New York Post just informed me that whatever happens to me while on assignment for the Post is only for publication in the Post.
In other words, I was being asked to remove the blog post.
Because this was my first assignment with the New York Post and I have yet to sign a contract, I was unaware of this dilemma. Besides, I specifically waited until after the story was published before I wrote about it on my blog.
It is not something I wanted to do, but if I didn’t remove the post, then I would never get another assignment from the New York Post again.
And my whole goal in launching a freelance career a couple of years ago was to maintain a steady supply of assignments from national publications.
So hopefully, they’ll keep calling.
