WINGERS, WINGERS, EVERYWHERE….So what’s my take on the Media Matters report showing that conservative syndicated columnists outnumber liberal syndicated columnists on newspaper op-ed pages? I know you’re wondering. First, I suspect it demonstrates that syndicated op-ed columns are mostly run in smallish newspapers, and smallish newspapers tend to serve conservative communities. Second, it demonstrates the astonishing hegemony of George Will over our op-ed pages. Who knew rural America was so in love with bow ties and faux intellectualism?
