    Hmmm maybe a sign that even leftist are getting sick of the constant attacks on Trump for insignificant matters and the promotion of radial leftist ideas?

    "
    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. "

    I always thought that of all the lefty sites, Think Progress was the worst. Every time someone would post a Think Progress link to bolster an argument it was an easy win for me. The links were deceptive and the crazy articles couldn't be sourced. I'll miss it.
