What is it about the Los Angeles Times?

+ More

You can find a lot of things in the Los Angeles Times, which in the face of circulation losses seems to be trying to reinvent itself. You can find first-rate political analysis, like this piece headlined "Why Democrats Argue Rights at their Peril" by the veteran Ron Brownstein. And you can find this obnoxious column, by someone named Joel Stein, on why he doesn't support our troops. Stein's article prompted this blog entry from radio talk show host and Orange County lawyer Hugh Hewitt. Stein agreed to be interviewed on Hewitt's show; here is the transcript. I just heard radio talk show host Sean Hannity say that Stein did not accept an invitation to be on his program. From reading the Hewitt transcript I can see why.
