With “Conservatives” Like These…

March 16, 2009

who needs Blue Dog Democrats?

This is my first time reading Mr. Smith, so I cannot quite tell if this is written seriously or as a satire (for the record, I’m leaning towards the latter).

It brings up an interesting (though obvious) point either way. 9 times out of 10, the token conservative for a media company is a moderate that likes taking jabs at the conservative wings of the Republican party. Where are the Rush Limbaughs of the world at CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, et cetera? I could have pointed to Glen Beck on CNN Headline News as an example of a conservative on a “mainstream” media source (as the highest rated show on Headline News at the time), but he moved to Fox for one reason or another.
