They should have fired Fred instead

I'm still spitting nails over the WaPo's dunderheaded decision to drop Froomkin. I try not to swear much here but really, what fucking idiots. They dump the strongest voice they had willing to call out bullshit on all sides of the fence and yet today they give prime real estate to Krauthammer and Wolfowitz, two guys who were so wrong about everything in the last eight years, they should standing on a street corner with a tin cup begging for forgiveness.

Meanwhile, they sit around the boardroom bemoaning how the internets and those horrible opinionated bloggers are killing their business. What lamebrains. Blogs aren't killing them. They're commiting suicide with their own ass backwards editorial decisions.

Update: Jane has more background on why Froomkin was fired.

Libby: you were a regular on my youngest's blog reading list even though you ripped her for being anti drug legalization. Your increasing use of the F word has caused her to drop you though.

The good news is that I love the F word and will be here more often to make up for her.

Great fucking blog Libby.

The more the print media lack profitability the more they depend on ideological funding. Their business model was often yellow* journalism to begin with.

*cheap wood-based paper turns yellow, as opposed to hemp paper, btw

LOL Truth. I'm sorry if I offended your kid, but welcome back.

Good point Mike. Both of them.
