In in its announcement of the hiring of Ross G. Douthat as resident conservative op-ed contributor, the New York Times makes explicit its employment critieria for any pundit to the right of Dennis Kucinich:

You must “steer away from partisanship…or doctrine.”

You must “frequently criticize Republicans.”

Show a “concern for income equality.”

And be a “squishy pro-lifer.”


Tim Graham
asks:

Would the New York Times announce it’s hired a “liberal writer” for the op-ed page and then declare they “steer away from partisanship or doctrine,” are “squishy” on a “woman’s right to choose,” and “frequently criticized Democrats”?
