    Atlanta Progressive News fires reporter for trying to be objective | Fresh Loaf

    Atlanta Progressive News fires reporter for trying to be objective
    February 15, 2010 at 5:16 pm by Andisheh Nouraee in News
    Atlanta Progressive News has parted ways with long-serving senior staff writer Jonathan Springston. Apparently, Springston’s affinity for fact-based reporting clashed with Cardinale’s vision.

    And, no, that’s not sarcasm.

    In an e-mail statement, editor Matthew Cardinale says Springston was asked to leave APN last week “because 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.”

    Cardinale says he has no plans to fill the position left vacant by Springston’s exit. His full statement to CL appears after the jump.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    The name of the publication says volumes....Progressive does not equal fact and logic.

    and not exactly mainstream.

    But it is refreshing to find one editor who admits that "fact-based reporting clashed with" the editor’s/paper's/networks' vision.

    "Progressive" is the new replacement word for "Liberal."

    I'm not kidding.
