Washington Post retires "journalist" for being to far to the left!


America’s left-wing dailies are finally realizing that they are committing suicide. The Washington Post forced one of it’s most left-wing journalists into retirement.

From Washington Post…

Post blogger Dave Weigel, who wrote about the conservative movement, resigned amid controversy today following disclosure of disparaging e-mails he’d written about some of the very people he was hired to cover. Weigel bears responsibility for sarcastic and scornful comments he made in e-mails leaked from a supposedly private listserv called Journolist, started in 2007 by fellow Post blogger and friend Ezra Klein. Weigel’s e-mails showed strikingly poor judgment and revealed a bias that only underscored existing complaints from conservatives that he couldn’t impartially cover them. But his departure also raises questions about whether The Post has adequately defined the role of bloggers like Weigel. Are they neutral reporters or ideologues?

[Weigel’s] e-mails made negative comments about Pat Buchanan, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, among others. One suggested it ‘would be a vastly better world if Matt Drudge decided to handle his emotional problems more responsibly, and set himself on fire.
