Spain’s Abdication Costs Journalists’ Jobs in Spats on Coverage

Spain’s second-largest newspaper split with its royal correspondent and a group of writers and illustrators quit a satirical weekly magazine amid spats over coverage of King Juan Carlos’s abdication.

Ana Romero, a long-time royal reporter at Madrid-based El Mundo, is no longer writing for the newspaper after a dispute over references to the king’s relationship with German aristocrat Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein following his abdication announcement this week, according to news-website El Confidencial. Romero, one of the reporters who founded El Mundo in 1989, declined to comment when contacted by Bloomberg News.
