Washington Post Terminates Its Best Columnist, Dan Froomkin
"The Washington Post, which pays money to opinion writers such as Bill Kristol (smarmy) and Richard Cohen (smarmier), has fired blogger Dan Froomkin, one of the only WaPo opinion writers who pointed out that the Bush White House was crooked."
The Post says his column has outlived its usefulness. Is that another way of saying Obama is so popular there's no need for a journalist who seeks to hold him and others in the Administration accountable? Do they really think because Bush is gone, the problems are over? Just wait a few more months...the restless stirrings by interest groups are already there, criticism is just around the corner.
Froomkin undoubtedly will have no trouble landing another media outlet for his work. I hope it's soon because his voice is too important not to be shared.
