Today’s (27aug14) Union published the bios of its new fifteen-member editorial board that has been penetrated by three, count them, three conservatives – Rachel Helm, Norm Sauer, and Stan Meckler. From what I have seen, the remaining members steer a decidedly leftward course ranging from a few unmistakable degrees to ‘hard a’port!’
Ms Lynn Wenzel, one of the latter, writes that she is “proudly progressive” and, no doubt, will bring her full influence to bear on the resident super-majority. With such shared pride among some of the other members, I wonder what influence the self-declared middle roaders like Brother Bob (and Publisher Jim?) will have on such an obviously balanced editorial board.
Don't misunderstand, I wouldn't change a member on that panel, and only wish that I could have been one of the few conservatives to join in the discussions which promise to be more than entertaining. Oh well ;-)
