MPR has been working on this for over a month, which means Keillor almost certainly knew the final outcome when his WaPo op-ed urging clemency for Franklin went up *last night*
Garrison Keillor, who's been fired over allegations of inappropriate behavior, wrote this yesterday
Garrison Keillor was fired today for allegations of inappropriate behavior. He wrote this yesterday
The timing of this now seems... awkward.
Last night's op-ed by Garrison Keillor: "Al Franken should resign? That’s absurd."
This Garrison Keillor column from yesterday did not age well.
One day after #garrisonkeillor penned this piece on Franken he has been fired for inappropriate behavior
Keillor wrote in WaPo YESTERDAY about Franken allegations: "This is pure absurdity, and the atrocity it leads to is a code of public deadliness."
lol keillor wrote this yesterday
Oh wow the op-ed also explicitly argues against re-naming things, in particular a Minneapolis lake named after a Confederate politician
Just leaving this op-ed here, as more information unfolds. Written by Garrison Keillor. Published yesterday.
Keillor basically goes full Federalist against re-naming things in this piece, it's bonkers
Just yesterday, Keillor defended Sen. Al franken in a op-ed, calling the photo of him reaching out to grope a woman "low comedy" and deriding calls for his resignation as "pure absurdity"
Maybe we just shouldn't be running columns where men argue we should go easy on sexual abusers?
Is every Garrison Keillor column written in this intensely annoying style?
This take *really* didn’t age well.
Garrison Keillor: Al Franken should resign? That’s absurd.
Garrison Keillor published this yesterday
This take by Garrison Keillor didn't age well ...
Can someone explain to me why Garrison Keillor is so beloved? Because this is just nonsensical.
After all that talk of renaming things, the has this gem in their story about Keillor's firing.
It's really telling that Garrison Keillor's op-ed open with a defense of keeping the name "Lake Calhoun" in Minnesota. Despite his rejection of Trump, Keillor displays the same underlying politics of reaction & privilege.
Well this aged well (it was ridiculous yesterday, much more so today)
