A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

More on the SPJ-L list: Well, I sent out a response to the SPJ-L listserv to the one I made below, prompting a number of irrelevant responses.

One person responded that the operation in Kosovo was a NATO operation -- "totally within Europe, was not UN."

Unless...maybe there's some sort of requirement that I must have a certain worldview to be considered a "journalist."

So much for Alterman's thesis.
