From Nora Tocus:

Dr Miller: I hope you had something better to do this evening than watch Bill O’Reilly on FOX so I will summarize for you. He crowed that John Carroll, editor of the LA Times, has been forced out and says that his replacement will be required to clear the contents of the editorial page with the paper’s publisher. He also pointed out that the LA Times is owned by the Trib and clearly intended his message to be that this liberal (read: wild & crazy) paper will now be slapped into shape. I later googled and did not find any of this spin, just straight reportage of Carroll’s retirement. But if it’s true that another liberal voice has been silenced, this is appalling news. And I imagine this could mean that Michael Kinsley will soon be packing up.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
