Scott Burgess' stock continues to rise as the Guardian's Albert Scardino resigns over l'affaire Aslam.
Here is the Guardian's confirmation.
Scott has done much more than just get a guy fired. He has exposed the Guardian as either being mendacious or stupid. While initially it seemed that Aslam was given a pass on his membership in Hizb ut-Tahrir, it now looks like the editor who hired him, Mr. Scardino, simply didn't know anything about the group or at least didn't bother to do a little research (like the kind that Scott did).
The Guardian is indeed troubled that they ever hired Aslam. But Aslam's article must have met approval from the editors, and that is the real scandal. The management of the paper doesn't seem yet to appreciate the fact that had Aslam been a member only of, say, the local rugby club his words would still have been repugnant.
