Article by reporter Ted Cohen, describing his recent dismissal by the "Portland Press Herald," and discussing the fact that he is the reporter who in 2000 discovered the 1976 drunken-driving arrest of George W. Bush in Kennebunkport. The "Portland Press Herald," under editor Jeannine Guttman, failed to print the story, garnering wide-spread criticism. Cohen, 53, claims Guttman has undermined the credibility of the newsroom that her predecessor, Louis Ureneck, spent years building. Further, Cohen maintains that his current editor, 31-year-old Ryan Blethen, son of owner Frank Blethen, has been after him since he joined the paper 15 months ago. Cohen has worked for the paper for nearly 30 years.
