Journalist says editor shut down his column to protect Harry Reid

Politico editor Jon Ralston used the occasion of Harry Reid taking glee in his lie against Mitt Romney to point out when an editor pulled one of his columns to protect the very same “Dingy” Harry Reid….

Ralston eventually posted the column at his website:

Now that CNN’s Dana Bash has found Harry Reid to be unrepentant about his Mitt Romney tax lies, it’s finally time to publish a column I wrote contemporaneously with the Nevada senator’s McCarthy-like tactic during the 2012 campaign. The column was never published because Las Vegas Sun Editor Brian Greenspun attempted to protect his friend, Reid, from the criticism.

I never wrote for the Sun again.
