(Welcome to the folks at Crooks & Liars! Thanks, Mike!)
DistributorcapNY wrote a great post on the hiring of Billy 'the Kid' Kristol - much better researched than mine (although in my defense, I wrote mine after coming home from my New Year's gig at 3:00 in the morning...)
Here's what I thought:
Have you noticed that all of the 'responses' to the people who write or e-mail the NYT with the complaint, not about Kristol's conservatism, but about the fact that he's Wrong. About. Everything. are answered with 'we want a variety of viewpoints'!
Yes, you must always balance truth with a lie - or it wouldn't be
'balanced', would it?
That non-answer is completely ignoring the question asked, which has nothing to do with what side of the political spectrum one is on, and everything to do with credibility. These buffoons refuse to address that issue, but switch their answer over to something that wasn't asked.
What, couldn't they get Katherine Harris?
The Old Gray Mare, she ain't what she used to be...
