Why Did Pando Fire Two of Its Best Reporters?
Posted on Jun 25, 2014
David Sirota was breaking big stories at Silicon Valley site Pando Daily, so it’s a bit odd that he and fellow contributor Ted Rall were abruptly let go without any public explanation.
Here’s Sirota, who has been a radio host, successful author and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ spokesman, responding via email to his newsletter subscribers:
Gawker filed a report in which an anonymous source alleges that the layoffs were politically motivated:
In a response to the blog, Pando editor Paul Carr categorically denies “the entirety of your story,” writing, “to be clear: any suggestion that investors have any impact — ever — on which writers we hire or fire, or what we write, is 100% false. There’s plenty of both politics and tech on Pando, and there will continue to be.”
