AOL Government Shuttered

AOL has closed down AOL Government, although you wouldn’t know it by visiting the site; at least not at first.

A tipster informed us that AOL shut Government down after only eight 18 months of publishing and let go off all staffers. However, the site keeps “updating” with content from other AOL verticals and links to completely other sites, such as CNN.

We reached out to AOL and they declined to comment on Government and any layoffs. If anyone has any further details, feel free to share them with us.
