The agonizing about me being in the LA Times continues. Though the loss of Scheer remains the main gripe. A progressive delegation visited the LA Times to demand the liberal gamut be fortifitied. I particularly like this part:
When Martinez and [Op-ed page editor Nick Goldberg, no relation] mentioned wanting to be intellectually provocative on their Opinion pages, thereby running people with far-right opinions, Marcy asked, “Would you run Hitler? Would you give a half a page to someone who espoused annihilating a race?”
I generally despise email writing campaigns because they are so canned. And I’m not asking for anything of the sort. But since these guys aren’t going to let up, it’s worth reminding folks that as a general note if you like having my column — or anybody’s else’s — in your local paper, it never hurts to send a polite note saying so.
