After just three months of serving as the managing editor of Observer Digital, hunky former men.style.com editor Tyler Thoreson was let go at the end of last week. In what one Observer source described as a "culture clash," the tough-talking Thoreson never really quite fit in at the idiosyncratic salmon weekly — though he did manage to streamline their media and politics coverage into easier-to-digest verticals. "He's moved on and we wish him well," says Observer editor Kyle Pope. The paper is now looking for a new editor for observer.com.
