    ThinkProgress, a Top Progressive News Site, Has Shut Down

    ThinkProgress... helped define progressivism during the Obama years, is shutting down.

    The outlet, which served as an editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress, will stop current operations on Friday...

    Oxymoron: Democrat... Think Tank.

    Oh well... a small piece of the Goebbels Media machine goes the way of my formerly favorite comedy channel... Air America.

    I doubt there will be any reduction in the amount of hyper-partisan think tank garbage disguised as journalism as a result of this development. I expect the opposite, actually.

    I wonder which "reputable" organazations will hire their former employees. Perhaps the NYT, CNN, or PBS?

    I’ve never once navigated to ThinkProgress on my own, so that’s probably a good example as to why they were struggling. I’ve probably only ever clicked their links when they show up here onDP.

    Top site? Hardly.

    [qoute].. But it will no longer function as an independent enterprise focused on original reporting. [/quote]

    When did they start doing this?
