Reporters Suspended after Seeing Concert

I wasn't aware that loving Springsteen was considered partisanship:
Two St. Paul Pioneer Press reporters who were suspended for attending the recent "Vote for Change" political fund-raising concert have filed a union grievance against the newspaper.

Reporters had been asked not to attend the Bruce Springsteen and R.E.M. concert because ticket sales benefited an affiliate of the liberal group MoveOn. Newspaper management said attendance would compromise the politically neutral stance expected of journalists.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press has yet to endorse a candidate.
