Apparently it is not just the leftist newpapers and television news that are suffering big setbacks. It is happening online as well.
ThinkProgress, a Top Progressive News Site, Has Shut Down

ThinkProgress, the influential news site that rose to prominence in the shadow of the Bush administration and helped define progressivism during the Obama years, is shutting down.

The outlet, which served as an editorially independent project of the Democratic Party think tank Center for American Progress, will stop current operations on Friday and be converted into a site where CAP scholars can post. Top officials at CAP had been searching for a buyer to take over ThinkProgress, which has run deficits for years, and according to sources there were potentially three serious buyers in the mix recently. But in a statement to staff, Navin Nayak, the executive director of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, said the site was ultimately unable to secure a patron.

The irony of being unable to attract capitalist support to stay in operation is pretty rich.

"Hey, give us money so we can keep operating at a deficit while writing articles about how you're a bad person."

That wasn't a winning sales pitch?

I guess they didn't progress enough financially to resolve their deficit issues!

They wanted to show just how effective leftist policies would be in producing prosperity.

Sure enough, they showed us.

Good, let's hope it's a trend... Progressivism is an ideology that should never have been resurrected.
