This Is a Newspaper. You Can’t Have Open Debate Here!

WaPo Published a Column from Hugh Hewitt and the Left Had a Complete Meltdown (townhall.com)

It wasn’t even that provocative of a column. Hugh Hewitt is pretty mild-mannered. He’s not a fire-breather by any means. He wrote an opinion article that said basically that Dr. Fauci had become very divisive and wondered if that meant it was time for him to go.

He didn’t say it was time for Fauci to go because he was wrong about everything. He merely pointed out that Fauci has very passionate attackers and very passionate followers. And for an unelected public servant whose role is to set public policy, such passions might make it difficult for him to be effective.

It’s an interesting point. I doubt it will sway anyone’s opinion, most importantly Dr. Fauci, whom he did interview for the column.

But of course, the left went crazy, because their supposedly objective newspaper published a column by a journalist who is right of center.

BTW, someone should tell these people going berserk about this, that it kind of proves the point about “objectivity” at The Washington Post. They wouldn’t be in such an uproar if the paper commonly presented both sides of an argument. They’re used to only seeing things from the left, and that’s all they want to see.
