...The One-Minute Pundit
Friday, June 24, 2011
irrelevant debate over whether newspapers should have opinions. Both sides miss the point (and we suspect with some of the debaters it may be intentional): the best opinions are those that work their way into news copy through the weasel word, the sly attribution, the crafty omission, the nifty last graf -- and they're better still if they express the same opinions. Newspapers will give us their mostly unwanted opinions long after the last pundit would be fired, which will be never.
