INTERNATIONAL NEWS: E-mail comment gets exec moved

LONDON: Jo Moore, a British PR exec who sent an e-mail on

September 11 saying the day would be a good one to bury bad news, has

been moved to a new job.

Moore, formerly head of the press desk at the transport department, now

holds a policy role, but retains her nearly $100,000 (£70,000) salary.

Former BBC Moscow correspondent Martin Sixsmith will take her old job at

a salary of $141,000 (£100,000).

Britons, including shadow transport secretary Theresa May, voiced their

anger over Moore's job switch - as opposed to her dismissal - to local

tabloid The Mirror. In a public apology, Moore said she wishes she had

never sent the e-mail.
