Critiques of Editorials

A new Salon Blog counters some of the herd mentality in editorial pages online and off:

But Saletan really undermines his argument by viciously attacking Gore when no such attack is warranted. Gore wrote an Op Ed that said I told you that if Bush was president that the powerful would benefit and the average joe would get stiffed. Saletan ignores completely whether Gore is right. Saletan seems much more interested in calling Gore and his campaign “a failure”, “inauthentic and grating”, inept, pious and that “his driving imperative is to prove that he’s right and his opponents are wrong.”
