Babbling Babs is at it again. This time she cancelled her subscription to the LA Times because they… Well, I’ll let her tell you:
The greater Southern California community is one that not only proudly embraces its diversity but demands it. Your publisher’s decision to fire Robert Scheer is a great disservice to the spirit of our community.
I’m almost embarrassed for you in seeing the LA Times being referred to as the “Chicago LA Times” on the myriad of internet sites I’ve visited in the last few days. It seems, however, an aptly designated epithet, representing the feeling among many of your readers that your new leadership, especially that of Jeff Johnson, is entirely out of touch with them and their desire to be exposed to views that stretch them beyond their own paradigms.
So Babbling Babs takes the Times to task not accepting views that “stretch [people] beyond their own paradigms.”
OK. Fair enough.
But then she just throws the whole thing into the intellectual scrap heap.
…I am now forced to carefully reconsider which sources can be trusted to provide me with accurate, unbiased news and forthright opinions. Your new columnist, Jonah Goldberg, will not be one of those sources.
So her problem is that the Times hired a conservative columnist. So Babbling Babs doesn’t exactly want to be “stretch beyond her own paradigm” does she?
Protesting a conservative voice in Southern California… so much for “proudly embracing diversity.”
Irony is so lost on the dumb.
Babs, if you’re reading this… And I know you lurk…. I don’t dislike you because you’re liberal. I dislike you because you’re stupid.
