Don't let the bedbugs bite

The Hartford Courant allegedly fired consumer affairs columnist George Gombossy for writing a critical column about one of the paper's major advertisers.

From the Consumerist:
The last column, which the paper refused to run, is about a Connecticut Attorney General investigation into mattress emporium Sleepy's. The chain is accused of selling used mattresses as new, and—even worse—selling used mattresses infested with bedbugs as new. Ew.
Gombossy said he plans to continue his column as an independent blogger.
