Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Reporter quits Politico to go work for Democrats

Isn’t that like leaving your job as a fireman in order to begin your new job as a firefighter?  Not much of a distinction.

Anywho, the deets (as those crazy kids on the street call it):

A Politico reporter who often penned stories about Sarah Palin and other Republicans has quit journalism to work with the Democratic Party in Arizona, sources tell The Daily Caller.

That reporter, Andy Barr, has covered national politics for the publication since 2008. Barr leaving to help elect Democrats will likely fan the flames of critics who say Politico has a liberal bias.

Why, that’s just crazy talk!  Continuing:

Barr is not the first Politico reporter to leave for a Democratic gig. Congressional reporter Jonathan Allen left Politico in 2009 to work as an aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a Florida Democrat, but he returned to Politico in 2010.

Politico’s editor-in-chief, John Harris, responded to questions about Barr’s departure, writing in an email that the website’s management does not “worry about someone’s personal ideology so long as it is understood that their responsibilities at POLITICO mean leaving personal views at the door.”

Yeah…”leaving personal views at the door”.

This was a question that popped into my head, as I was reading the article.  Great minds think alike, I see:

But have any left Politico to work for a Republican? “I don’t know of any, but haven’t made any effort to keep track of where folks land,” Harris said.

But hey, it’s not like reporters and MSM figures are quitting their jobs to go work for Democrats…right?

Nope…no liberal media bias!
