I guess after the inevitable right-wing freak-out about Kos being hired by Newsweek, we need a mini freak-out about their decision to hire Rove. For balance, of course:
Newsweek magazine hiring Karl Rove to be a political commentator illustrates everything that is wrong with the corporate media system. Here is a guy whose scorched earth politics have left the nation reeling with ill effects and crippling divisions and he is rewarded with a prominent mouthpiece for his vitriol from one of the nation’s most widely circulated newsweeklies? Newsweek might as well give a column on the subject of humanitarian living to Charles Manson.
Newsweek thinks it will sell magazines. Hence, they hired him. Lesson over.
Can we leave the freaking out about stuff like this to the professionals? Like, say, Red State?
