Less than a week after losing their jobs, a group of former employees at GOOD Magazine announced their intention to put together a new magazine, Tomorrow.
“It’s going to be about what’s next, what’s on the cusp,” the group said in a statement on Tumblr Tuesday. “We want to get out of our comfort zone and push others to do the same. We want to meet and introduce you to great people.”
According to LA Weekly, the budding new team includes former executive editor Ann Friedman and ex-staffers Cord Jefferson (senior editor), Megan Greenwell (managing editor), Tim Fernholz (business editor), Amanda Hess (lifestyle editor) and former associate editor Nona Willis Aronowitz, as well as former editorial design director Dylan C. Lathrop and former assistant editor Zak Stone. Stone and Lathrop reportedly resigned from GOOD on Monday.
The Atlantic Wire reported that the firings did not come as a surprise, and that they were not due to financial concerns.
“I’m reclaiming ‘firing,'” Greenwell told The Wire. “They decided they did not want us, and it wasn’t that they couldn’t afford us.” Aronowitz added, “It’s definitely fired for creative differences.”
When GOOD debuted six years ago, the magazine’s founder, Ben Goldhirsh declared it “a free press for the critical idealist.” This week, a new beta version of GOOD’s website went live with a different billing: “the platform for 21st Century citizenship.”

WATCH: Trump praises his rally audience for not acting like ‘credible people’ after ‘CNN sucks’ chant
President Donald Trump praised an unruly crowd at a 2020 re-election campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire on Tuesday.
Trump was falsely claiming that China is paying for the tariffs in his trade war when he went off on the press.
"But when you listen to the fake news -- look how many there are," he said as he gazed out to the press area.
He then stepped back from the microphone as his supporters booed the concept of a free press.
The crowd started chanting, "CNN sucks."
"Are we sure that we are in New Hampshire?" Trump asked. "You know, you have a reputation— I know it is not true because I know you too well. You have a reputation of being staid, very elegant, staid, and credible people. You are not acting it tonight and that's good.
Chris Cuomo and the racist trolls: An especially stupid new low for Donald Trump
The man who used an ethnic slur against CNN anchor Chris Cuomo epitomizes everything contemptible about the worst of President Donald Trump's supporters. He was racist, smug, dishonest and — when the going got tough — cowardly.
So, of course, the president backed him up.
Spoiler alert: This essay will end by explaining why Trump, those trolls and everyone who defends them are, to use Cuomo's colorful language, "punk-ass bitches." But first, a review of what happened.
