Dan Froomkin, columnist and blogger extraordinaire, fired:
Washington Post Media Communications Director Kris Coratti tells POLITICO that “our editors and research teams are constantly reviewing our columns, blogs and other content to make sure we’re giving readers the most value when they are on our site while balancing the need to make the most of our resources. Unfortunately, this means that sometimes features must be eliminated, and this time it was the blog that Dan Froomkin freelanced for washingtonpost.com.”
The Politico story has reaction from across the blogosphere, and it ain’t pretty.
And the “mainstream media” wonders why no one takes them seriously these days?
