Popular blogger at the Washington Post, Dan Froomkin, was given his walking papers today. He was told that his widely viewed blog White House Watch “wasn’t working any more.”
I personally find this action by the WAPO deeply disturbing. Every time I would post to Froomkin’s blog, he’d include my remarks, and comment on them. He was the epitome of what blogging is supposed to be about. I think he loathed G.W. Bush even more than I did, which is truthfully hard to conceive.
I think I will boycott the Washington Post website from now on… Please join me in this protest.
