Back on Tuesday, Reuters’ reporter Terri Cullen published a story entitled “Backdoor taxes to hit middle class,” which alleged a series of stealth middle classes tax increases proposed by the Obama White House.
The White House complained that the story contained numerous false claims. Reuters pulled the story after conceding it contained “significant errors of fact” and said a new corrected story would be forthcoming. Then they apparently concluded that the errors were so thoroughgoing that no corrected story would be published.
Now comes word from former Editor & Publisher editor Greg Mitchell that Cullen is now no longer working at Reuters, though the circumstances of her departure remain unclear.
