I was just reading my Sun-Times today when I came across the editorial section and a great announcement:
We are returning to our liberal, working-class roots, a position that pits us squarely opposite the Chicago Tribune — that Republican, George Bush-touting paper over on moneyed Michigan Avenue.
Cheers to them for finally recognizing their readership. I have long argued that the Tribune is just that–a right-wing, corporate rag that routinely apologizes for their endorsed president without actually apologizing themselves, for endorsing him. Twice! And never a Democrat, ever. Ever!
(An aside: Just to prove how out of touch they are, over at NRO Kathryn Jean-Lopez actually cheers an editorial in the Tribune today, describing it as “no right-wing rag.” I am awaiting a correction from her as we speak…4pm and still no correction! Come on, K-Lo, you right-wing nut!)
Hooray to the Sun-Times, the paper I still receive on my doorstep every morning, for doing the right thing. And I will assume this means that the Bill O’Reilly columns will not be running anymore? Thank you.
