Yesterday, Timothy Noah related the tale of Bryan Keefer, one of the guys behind Spinsanity. Keefer quit his job as a research assistant at a labor union after his bosses told him that criticizing politicians supported by the union was a firing offense. In this case, the fact that his activities were incompatible with his employers’ just makes sense, and he’s probably better off with another job. Even so, this once again illustrates the risks of spouting off in public when you work for somebody else. I respect his independence and hope he got a better job somewhere else where he’s free to say whatever he thinks at Spinsanity.
