In the latest turmoil to rock the Daily News newsroom, Ian Bishop, a top political editor, has been suspended for two weeks after tossing a telephone at another editor's office, shattering a glass wall.
The suspension of Bishop, who was initially expected to be part of the paper's political reporting team covering the Democratic and Republican conventions, couldn't come at a worse time for a daily newspaper covering a national election.
The incident happened Saturday morning, when Bishop apparently became irate with someone he was speaking with on the phone and tossed the phone in the direction of the office of Stuart Marques, the paper's managing editor of news.
Marques was not present at the time of the incident.
The source said, "Nobody knows what set him off."
