ROSS DOUTHAT CRITICIZES RON FOURNIER’S LAZY STEREOTYPING. “So Fournier is both attacking conservatives for being wrong about an emerging issue where they aren’t actually wrong, and seeking to bolster his case by invoking an earlier debate on related issues where conservatives also probably weren’t wrong. And his entire argument, in both cases, is that the conservative perspective is mean-spirited.”
I find Fournier considerably better than the average journalist, but this latest affair just serves to remind how low that bar can be.
