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.

Wrong answer: The Los Angeles Times has decided to dump it's ultraliberal columnist and its conservative cartoonist. (Or, as the mainstream media would characterize them, it's liberal columnist and ultraconservative cartoonist.)

I've always been in favor of intellectual diversity on newspaper opinion pages -- and that includes left-wing conspiracy theory wackos like Robert Scheer. For those still interested in Scheer's bile, they can check out his Web site slated to launch at month's end.

As for Ramirez, his cartoons will still be carried by Copley News Service in various papers across the U.S. But I must confess I find it disappointing that one of the nation's largest newspapers doesn't find it necessary to have a political cartoonist on staff.

If the Los Angeles Times thinks it's circulation woes stem from Scheer and Ramirez, they're really out of touch. I mean, I know they're out of touch, but this move is a solution in search of a problem.

it's or its... pick one.
 
Diversity is good, but it should be mainstream diversity, if that makes sense. That is, someone who represents the views of the average republican or democrat. The little I've read of Scheer (shy bother?), he is pretty much on the fringe.
 
you said:

Perhaps you should have said "its columnist and ultraconserative radical right-wing cartoonist"
