The Washington Post has fired Harold Myerson

Fred Hyatt cited too much concern about labour unions and germany, http://www.politico.com/blogs/on-media/2015/12/washington-post-harold-meyerson-columns-failed-to-attract-readers-217256#superComments

There are still liberals on the Washington Post but they aren't concerned with labour issues like Myerson is. Bernie Sanders has said this is is a terrible decision. Noting there aren't many labour writers left in the mainstream media.
