John’s praise of the Washington Examiner is spot on. I was honored when Mark Tapscott asked me to write a monthly column and delighted when Byron York and Michael Barone joined the Examiner’s ranks.
The Washington Times, of course, has been a mainstay of non-leftist journalism for years. Recently, the estimable Richard Miniter became its editorial page editor. Today the Times published an op-ed I wrote about Tom Perez, the Obama administration’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
Most the attention that has been paid to the nominees for sub-cabinet posts at DOJ has focused, appropriately, on Dawn Johnsen. But Perez’s advocacy of a cutting-edge theory through which to defend racial quotas in graduate school admissions deserves attention too.
