Follow that story: Cleveland Blog Freedom

A few days ago I mentioned the controversy up in Cleveland over the firing of a political blogger from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer over the objections of an Ohio Congressman. Well, that has now lead the paper to suspend the entire operation. Again I just wonder what the paper was thinking if they didn't anticipate that a political blogger would say something that some politician somewhere wouldn't strenuously object to... and what they planned to do when it happened. Another question is why they think this issue is limited to a purely political blog. Is there nothing controversial being written on any of the other blogs they are now sponsoring with non-staff writers.
