The Minneapolis StarTribune has long been seen as a left-wing publication that carries water for the current Democrat administration. Any doubts about its liberal-leanings can be put to rest with the appointment of its new CEO.
The Minneapolis Newspaper announced that it would be bringing on Lockdown Governor Tim Walz’ Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) Commissioner Steve Grove. If the paper lacks proper criticism of the liberal Governor now, one can only imagine how that will look when one of Walz' close confidants is in charge.
The Commissioner only recently settled a lawsuit alleging First Amendment rights violations. In the suit brought against the future newspaper CEO, Journalist Tony Webster alleged that Grove unconstitutionally blocked several Twitter accounts from his Official DEED Commissioner Account. Seeing as his account is used for purpose of communicating with taxpayers, his argument made sense.
On Monday, DEED agreed to pay Webster $17,000 in damages and a provided a block list from Grove’s account, which can be seen below:
Webster confirmed with a handful of accounts that they have been unblocked by Steve Grove.
It’s ironic that StarTribune thought that Steve Grove was the man for the job, considering that he has no tolerance for criticism of liberal Democrats.
However, with the newspaper’s far-left reporting record, maybe it makes sense that they hired a Walz lackey to prop up the liberal agenda in the media.
