Reporter fired for being objective

Really, you can’t satirize something like this; it satirizes itself:

Atlanta Progressive News has parted ways with long-serving senior staff writer Jonathan Springston. Apparently, Springston’s affinity for fact-based reporting clashed with Cardinale’s vision.

And, no, that’s not sarcasm.

In an e-mail statement, editor Matthew Cardinale says Springston was asked to leave APN last week “because he held on to the notion that there was an objective reality that could be reported objectively, despite the fact that that was not our editorial policy at Atlanta Progressive News.”

Well, at least the APN is more honest than The New York Times….

      I can’t decide whether it’s more disgusting or funny. Probably some measure of both. 🙂

      And one of these days, I’m going to have to go to CPAC.
