But Hotsoup never took flight, and Fournier returned to the AP as online political editor. (Disclosure: Fournier also spoke with Politico about potential employment before rejoining the AP.)Ha! What the hell do they have against Ron Fournier? Especially after the last scandal, which was about how Ron was too friendly with a source. A legitimate complaint, sure, but we lived in DC. Karl Rove is buddy-buddy with half the fucking reporters in that town. They love him, he loves them, he's a source for everyone and they all go to happy hour together. And just a few weeks ago the same reporer-Michael Calderone-from the same paper-Politico-wrote a story all about how the last person to have Fournier's job thinks Fournier sucks and is destroying journalism. Somebody up there hates you, Ron!
