Speaking of inequality: I’m glad to see that my own profession of political journalism remains a pure meritocracy at its most rarefied levels, with the announcement that ABC has hired William “Always Wrong” Kristol to offer his pithy thoughts on This Week and other network venues.
I don’t even want to think about what Kristol will be paid for this gig. I suppose he must have a fan base, somewhere. But I think they should have to pay for their access to him by subscription.
