BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - An editor at The Daily Camera who published a critical editorial about the newspaper’s hedge fund owners without the publisher’s permission has been fired.

Dave Krieger tweeted Wednesday night that he was fired earlier in the day, though he didn’t say why.

The editorial page editor posted the piece on a blog April 14 after he said the newspaper’s publisher rejected it. It criticized cuts made by Alden Global Capital . Alden owns a controlling interest in Digital First Media, which owns numerous newspapers including The Denver Post and The Camera.

The Post recently published an editorial headlined “As vultures circle, The Denver Post must be saved,” calling for the paper to be sold. Editorial Page Editor Chuck Plunkett didn’t inform the newspaper’s editor or owners of his intentions.
