    about the lede and that was the last straw, she had to go?

    •  Which lede? (0+ / 0-)

      She was fired before the net neutrality piece.

        that were lies, which is probably most of them ;)

        And if she was fired before this piece, that's exactly my point. If she wasn't fired beforehand, would this have run as is?

        •  I have no way of knowing (0+ / 0-)

          Which is why I asked what her private stance was on the war and other issues on which some people viewed as liberal are actually not.

          Did she have a say on keeping Brooks and Douthat and if so why did she choose to do so? Or did she want them fired and if so was that part of why she war fired? I literally don't know how she stood on such things.

          She'll find a good new gig. Plenty of good opportunities in new media.

            what her private stance was on the war and other issues ... Or did she want them fired and if so was that part of why she war fired?  
            I would like to know that before she "finds other opportunities" of the plenty available. It would help to know whether she's been honest all along or not. Because those are good questions.

              one way or another, and perhaps which one she goes for will be indicative of the answer to some of these questions.

              That said, speculation is a bannable offense here so I'm banning you! :-)

                Don't even get me started on what that says ;)
