Editor's Job
It is the job of the editor to select articles that fit the focus of the journal.

He violated that. The article in question is outside the scope of the journal.

It is the job of the editor to have the articles peer reviewed. That is, reviewed by the appropriate experts in the field in question.

He violated that. He choose individuals who would pass it rather than the appropriate reviewers.

The two fossils "deliver the first clear picture of flatfish origins, a hotly contested issue in debates on the mode and tempo of evolution," said Friedman.

There can no longer be any doubt, he said in a statement: "The evolution of the profound cranial asymmetry of extant flatfishes was gradual in nature."
