To the extent that conservatives face any difficulty achieving a hearing for their views in journalism (or in academia, for that matter), the phenomenon is less the result of purposeful exclusion than a function of a commitment to maintaining professional standards. To be a good journalist or scholar, one must be willing to follow one’s research wherever it may lead.The is the very same Eric Alterman that refers to conservatives as "fucking Nascar retards". Attention slow witted Republicans on Capital Hill: why subsidize Eric Alterman through Pell grants and student loans? How about a head tax on tenured professors? Isn't that a better way of financing some of higher education? Just a reminder, when you tax socialists : you'll get less of them.
