LA Times: Rock and the Hard Place
I'm amused by this post
about how the "progressives" (code for the far Left) are trying to get more of their voices in the LA Times.
Republicans and conservatives have criticized the Times in the past, particularly over their crusade against the election of Arnold Schwarzenegger. But I will admit, they are at least making an attempt to rectify their past sins. I get regular emails from their editorial page highlighting their columns for the day; I assume many other bloggers are seeing the same thing. They finally canned the odious Robert Scheer, whose firing seems to have angered the progressives described in the post.
We don't ask or desire that the LA Times become a right-wing publication. All we ask is that our ideas get debated honestly. We're happy to battle it out intellectually. The Left, of course, can't stand the addition of mainstream conservatives like Jonah Goldberg to the paper's roster; they would prefer out-of-the-mainstream moonbats like Tom Hayden and Airiheadda Huffington.
