The Examiner.com shut down on July 10, 2016
Dr. Lee Outlaw
After Five years and becoming one of the fastest growing on-line news papers in America, it appears that the Examiner's relationship with the AXS Network ultimately led to it's demise.
Towards the end there were several attempts by AXS to weed out many of the writers by way of forcing Political Correctness, restricted words and phrases and even inducing required use of new grammar and additional editorial processes so restrictive it was impossible for many of us to write.
It even became impossible for us to communicate with our editors and editorial staff.
Fortunately I was invited back without restriction but was only able to write five new articles before AXS forced the shut down. July 10th was a sad day those of us who wrote for the Examiner. For most of us the old Examiner was a pleasure to write for and an interesting media platform to display our craft. The Examiner.com will be sorely missed. Below is the official announcement we received:
The Outlaw Observer and Opinion will begin operation once again on August 15, 2016. We will begin with a monthly full on-line issue with subsequent update news and articles as warranted.
As many of you know the Outlaw Observer and Opinion was put on "hiatus" following the AXS decision to remove many of its' rigid political correct and editorial policies which saw many talented writers go by the wayside simply because they could not meet the new AXS/Examiner standards.
I invite any former Examiner writers who desire a voice to join me in this renewed venture.
