Rod Dreher is a partisan hack. I had an email exchange with him over some comments he posted on the DMN blog, where, among other things, he conflates Muslims in general with fundamental Muslim terrorists.
Just read his blogs for a while, and you'd swear you were reading Newsmax or WorldNetDaily.
I know. He's a former National Review guy, if I recall correctly.
Keven Ann Cutsie, a recent hire from Arizona, is no better. Total freeper cheerleader. And, judging by her Sunday column way in the back of the editorial page, the former Op-Ed editor that Keven Ann replaced is jaw-droppingly dumb. She never, ever writes anything relevant.
They also censor Doonesbury and The Boondocks without notice. Not that they don't try to hide it, though. They usually run "old" comics in place of the "disappeared" ones that are less than a year old.
If I could get the Austin paper delivered here, or even the Star Telegram, I would. As it is, it's a choice between the DMN and the Lubbock paper. Even with all the problems I have with the DMN, it's still no contest. At least they have a decent crossword (NYT), and two on Saturday.
That should be "Not that they try to hide it." Still a stupid, awkward sentence.
And now conservative talkshow host Mark Davis is going to have a regular column in the DMN. It's not enough that we have WBAP, KLIF, KSKY, and a couple of other minor stations spewing the far right opinion. No, we need to maintain that careful balance between the right and the far right.
I miss the Dallas Times Herald.
