Ike,a reporter has got suspended, enters the shop and meets Peggy:

Peggy: It's just been our experience that anyone who comes in here with tassels on his loafers......is a big-city reporter wanting to do an interview with Maggie.

Ike: Mm-hm. About her upcoming wedding and all.

Peggy: Actually, about her getting that a**hole from New York fired.

Ike: I am just such a reporter.

What is the meaning of "getting"?
Does it mean "causing"?
