Gay Press: Killing Bad Stories About Advertisers

"The news editor and former editor in chief of the Florida Agenda both quit last week when their newspaper management told them they would refuse to print an expose they were writing about ongoing thefts occurring at a nightclub that is one of the company’s prominent advertisers..."
"[Former editor Jeremy] Jones stated the ‘censorship’ did not comport with his vision of what a newspaper should be. He added, “Your principles are part of your character.

Great to hear about gay journalists with principles, and rebelling against a culture of advertorial.
