Beyond one-from-column-A/one-from-column-B TV
: Kudlow & Company on CNBC right now has on Hugh Hewitt, Glenn Reynolds, and John Hinderaker at his “blogging heroes” on the Eason Jordan story. Interesting that they didn’t feel compelled to get people from each “side” but instead tell the story. Refreshingly different.
Hewitt will be appearing on Scarborough Country next; he bumped me…. But he makes up for it with a plug…
Also, when Kudlow asked about liberal bloggers hating Bush, Hewitt came to the defense of the medium, saying that there are bloggers with whom he disagrees — Josh Marshall, Matthew Yglesias — who are still skilled political writers and he reads them.
It’s not a column-A/column-B world. It’s not a black-and-white, right-and-wrong world. It’s more diverse, more complicated, more intelligent than that.
