On his radio show last night, Hugh Hewitt was trying to bully his political blogger friends to be more extreme. He was yelling about CBS's partisan bias-- conveniently forgetting his own. This is a guy whose first job out of Harvard was working for Richard Nixon, after Nixon had resigned.
One of the ULA's strengths is that we've avoided taking partisan sides (out of necessity maybe, because we contain a variety of viewpoints). We haven't had either Kerry or Bush on the cover of our magazines! We're ideological only in the sense that we're unabashed self-reliant populists-- which can cover a lot of ground on the Left and the Right. We plan to appeal to everybody-- except a few monopolists perhaps.
