Over hiring of conservative columnist...
The New York Times has hired one of its most virulent critics, prominent right-wing pundit William Kristol, as a columnist.**********
Times' editorial page editor Andy Rosenthal defended Kristol's hiring in an interview with politico.com, criticizing liberal bloggers who have been up in arms over the move.
"The idea that The New York Times is giving voice to a guy who is a serious, respected conservative intellectual — and somehow that's a bad thing … how intolerant is that?" said Rosenthal.
FROM THE COMMENTS:
My newest fan Sparky is really anxious to get his message out... so here it is...
"I just wanted you to state that you're a lying, ignorant prick with no moral certitude whatsoever. Hell, I was even meeting you 'in the middle' by changing your demonstrably false claim to a more truthful one..."Never let it be said the Halls aren't about free speech.
UPDATE: 2 Jan 2008 - Sparky's back with another essay
