Communist-Truther-Racist Quietly Pushed Under Bus

Van Jones, "Green Jobs Czar" for the Obama White House, has resigned:
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday.
Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.
This puts most major co-opted media outlets in the odd position of explaining Jones' departure for reasons they did not report and did their best to suppress.

Here's how Sarah Wheaton puts it at the New York Times:
In a victory for Republicans and the Obama administration’s conservative critics, Van Jones resigned as the White House’s environmental jobs “czar” on Saturday.
Actually Sarah, getting rid of this Red paranoid bigot is a victory for all Americans.
