There is some confusion here, because Washington Independent is also a newspaper promoting a liberal / progressive agenda. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 11:16, 19 November 2009 (UTC)
Reactionary Blanket Spamming
The previous comment is full of reactionary weasel words. A reactionary is a person who projects a longing for an idealized past, usually unlike a very ambivalent past, onto the present in order to avoid change and adaptation. The weasel words are 'liberal/ progressive' and ESPECIALLY 'agenda. Progressive liberals need to be vigilant of weasel words used to 'label and dismiss' us. The reactionary Right (remember this is a precise definition, not a weaselly term.) is waging war. Tapered (talk) 07:05, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
History and programs
1. Restored notable early history - mass deletion of material supported by citations is unacceptable in Wikipedia(with few exceptions). If an organization changes over time, that's ok, we neutrally, tactfully, factually document it, with verifiable sources.
2. IMHO, journalistic training by the organization is interesting enough for more about the training itself - does it include sourcing primary vs secondary, citing, factchecking, tone, editorial(self) oversight, becoming a reliable & verifiable citable source, records retention, etc.? Addendum: I ask because of this unfortunate occurrence, made worse by lack of kept records.
