Good News, Bad News

Good news: the LA Times is finally dropping wacko leftist Robert Scheer from its editorial page, and picking up none other than Jonah Goldberg.

Bad News: they’re also dropping David Gelernter.

    More bad news, conservative cartoonist is leaving…probably to “spend more time with his family.” But it’s a small price to pay to wash the stench of Scheer from my morning paper.

  2. CSUFBomb Says:

    Oops, that should have read “conservative cartoonist Michael Ramirez”…

    I’d had enought of Scheer nonsense.

    More Ted Rall? God Forbid!

    Gelernter is a big loss, hopefully some other, better-followed publication will pick up his columns.

    Jonah Goldberg will be more of a lightning rod, less effective to a So Cal audience.

    Jonah Goldberg?

    My God.

    You know when I stopped reading National Review?

    When Florence King retired, and they gave her page to self-inflated, pseudo-hipster Jonah Goldberg.

  7. Peggy Says:

    Absolutely unbelievable that they dropped Gerlernter! Hopefully, he’ll show up more often now at the Opinion Journal.

    Yay! Jonah Goldberg! That so makes up for the way they skew their “news” stories.

    Maybe they could consider some sort of “pay per pundit” program (Select West?)

    Meanwhile, since I can 9 Chickweed Lane online, there’s no point to the LA Times that I can see…

    Ramirez was very good.

    Goldberg didn’t last very long in Florence King’s NR closing-column space. A few others gave it a try, but Mark Steyn made it his own a couple of years ago.

    I disagree with much of Gelernter, but his analysis and reasoning are always great reading. Perhaps LAT is the wrong crowd for him – but to me it seemed like a good fit. He is an explainer and reasoner in the Greek tradition. I would hate to see him with a group of like-minded columnists preaching to the choir. Does anyone know why David is gone from LAT BTW? This is really disappointing.

    Ramirez is the real loss. Every time I see his latest cartoon I think ‘Paul Conrad’ and smile.

  13. Heywood Jablome Says:

    Golberg is a delusional moron. He actually stated that it wasn’t the Catholic Church who was opposed to Gallieo’s views–it was the scientists of the day who held Gallieo back. Talk about rewriting history. What a fucking joke.
