Chris Kluwe leaves Pioneer Press

| No Comments

Vikings punter Chris Kluwe announced he would no longer blog for the Pioneer Press Saturday morning via Twitter.

The decision came after an editorial in the newspaper which seemed to support the proposed marriage amendment in Minnesota. Kluwe is a vocal supporter of gay rights and marriage equality and was not happy with the editorial. According to Kluwe, the editorial was biased under the guise of neutrality.

He tweeted: "I will not abide lying. A stable society has to be built on a foundation of trust, and that editorial just eroded some of it away."

According to David Brauer of MinnPost, Kluwe's articles would often reach six-figure page views. The Pioneer Press will surely feel the loss of the popular punter's exit.
