As I sit staring at the latest column of neoconservative propaganda masquerading as opinion from William Kristol in the New York Times, it's hard not to observe how narrow and restricted the range of American political discourse is. Here we have what is the most demonized paper in the world of the conservative movement giving space to one of the most ideological leaders of that conservative movement despite his very serious credibility problems. And yet it is unthinkable that the Times would employ someone who is the ideological equivalent of Kristol but not from the conservative movement - can you imagine Noam Chomsky or Howard Zinn in the pages of the paper?
