Liberal news site ThinkProgress shutting down
Liberal news website ThinkProgress is shutting down.

The site was a project of The Center for American Progress (CAP) think tank.

"We are very sad to announce that after more than two months of searching, we have been unable to identify a new publisher for ThinkProgress, and we are left with no choice but to close ThinkProgress as an independent enterprise focused on original reporting," said Executive Director of the Center for American Progress Action Fund in a statement Friday.

ThinkProgress will stop operating Friday, according to the Daily Beast, which first reported the closure.

#4 grom's point is interesting

ThinkProgress was basically in the tank for Hillary in 16 and has made numerous digs at Sanders this year.

But ultimately, they have bad branding. Progressives don't want to think. They want to emote, virtue signal, vent, etc.
