A local newspaper in the United States fired an editor for a headline that criticized President Barack Obama harshly for his new working plan.

Editor Drew Johnson announced his demission via Twitter, saying “I just became the first person in the history of newspapers to be fired for writing a paper’s most read article.” Johnson ran a critical column about Obama with the headline “Take your jobs plan and shove it, Mr. President. Your policies have harmed Chattanooga enough,” in the newspaper named Chattanoga Times Free Press, in the Tennessee state of the U.S.

Meanwhile, Obama is currently nominating a childhood friend to represent the U.S. at the United Nations office and other international organizations in Geneva. He’s also tapping a major fundraiser for his re-election campaign to be ambassador to Morocco. If confirmed by the Senate, Pamela Hamamoto will have the rank of ambassador.

Hamamoto was Obama’s classmate during his Hawaii school days. She introduced to the president at a fundraiser last year and raised more than $500,000 for his campaign.

Dwight Bush Sr. is Obama’s pick to be ambassador to Morocco. Bush is president of a financial consulting firm in Washington and also bundled more than $500,000 for Obama’s campaign.
