"Progressive" News

This one is too good to believe.  An alternative news outlet in Atlanta, GA is parting ways with their senior reporter over differences of opinion about news reporting standards.  Straight from the horse's mouth....

In the end, we had to make a very difficult decision to move forward as a publication without Jonathan Springston. Last Wednesday, we informed him it seemed more appropriate if he found work with another publication or started his own publication.

At a very fundamental, core level, Springston did not share our vision for a news publication with a progressive perspective. 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. It just wasn’t the right fit.
They are a little more circumspect about such things at larger outlets.

Like the NY Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, etc.
