Frank Bruni Gets NYT Column (Or: From the Pack That Brought You George W. Bush)
The news yesterday was that Frank Bruni will be getting a NYT op-ed column.
We'll see how this turns out. But know that Bruni was one of the key figures in the 2000 presidential election -- that is, providing the NYT's fawning coverage of Bush. Bruni was lauded by Ann Coulter for his work.
Bruni is a talented writer and all that. But his history post-2000 is a perfect example of how it too often works at the Times: the A-list crowd keeps getting the good stuff, even if they do something so, so wrong.
