Pando Fires Ted Rall Along With David Sirota In Mini-Purge

Little explanation given. It's hard not to see this, as asserted throughout that piece, as some sort of amelioration for monied interests. In the journalist Sirota's case that's a shame since Pando's recent higher profile came due to his work. In the editorial cartoonist, editorial prose writer and sometimes journalist Rall's case, I imagine it sucks hard to lose a place where he could be well-supported for the kind of muck-raking and strident editorialization he likes to do. On the other hand, if you have to be tossed overboard, that's flattering company. I wish him the best in finding a new place of purchase and die a little bit inside about the shape of any and all well-funded journalism.
