Florida Reporter Fired After Calling DeSantis News Release Propaganda

From a Washington Post story by Dan Rosenzweig-Ziff and Sonia Rao headlined “Florida reporter fired after calling news release on DeSantis event ‘propaganda'”:

An Axios reporter in Tampa said he was fired after he responded to a Florida Department of Education email about an event featuring Gov. Ron DeSantis, calling the news release “propaganda.”

Ben Montgomery said he received a call from Jamie Stockwell, executive editor of Axios Local, who asked Montgomery to confirm he sent the email before saying the reporter’s “reputation in the Tampa Bay area” had been “irreparably tarnished.”
