Hey, thanks for pointing that out! I don't think I would have ever seen that if you hadn't.

Of course, the reason I wouldn't have seen it is because I'm referred to only as "[o]ne amused blogger."

That sounds like me, all right.

Yeah, I could have emailed you but this way brings it more attention -- besides, I really did like the contrast with the crazyguyinabasement.com image.

Do we need affirmative action for conservative journalists? Has anyone done a study of unemployed and/or discriminated against conservative journalists. That sure would be helpful. I mean, what self-respecting conservative would pursue a journalism career anyway?

It wouldn't be a question of employment or not: the question would be how many are able to move up to national publications/major dailies/the networks.

Affirmative action? I hadn't thought in those terms, but it wouldn't hurt for outlets to realize that they're out of step with the way most people think. The problem, I suspect, is that to the extent they get that they figure the people are, you know, wrong, and just need to be educated -- which is their job.
