I realize that our writers have to be careful, but given the tight link that appears to exist between authors and editors, is it therefore reasonable to infer that changes in editorship reflect changes in the "corporate taste" in terms of story focus, writing style, etc?

Put another way, were the editorial changes S&S' (and/or CBS') way of saying "we don't like the material from KRAD, or PAD or whomever? Or were the editors fired for other reasons external to the material, and the story refocusing a "side effect" from the firing?
The editorial firings in 2008, e.g. Marco, were purely financial - they fired all the folks who earned at a certain level, AIUI.
