Wednesday's HOT MIC
Confessions of a Lousy Headline Writer: I'm proud (perhaps too proud) to say my PJM columns have now been picked up by Real Clear Politics well over a hundred times since about Jan 1, 2015, including today's. But a good percentage of the time they change my headline and I suspect they're (mostly) right. Today what appears here as "Comey's Out. Who's Next for Rosenstein?" has popped up on RCP as "Draining the FBI Swamp is Bad News for Schumer (& Clinton)." Better? Possibly. It seems they're aiming for dramatic juxtaposition, as is Drudge. This time I'm listed between David Frum and Juan Williams. Best of all was when I was up against Paul Krugman. Who could ask for more?
