The MJS Scorecard (06/21/09)

MJS Scorecard


EVERY SUNDAY I REVIEW THE MOST COVETED EDITORIAL PAGES OF THE WEEK  BY OPINION-MAKERS AS WELL AS THE MOST WIDELY-READ, THE SUNDAY “CROSSROADS” SECTION OF THE MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. I WILL KEEP TRACK OF THE CONSERVATIVE AND LIBERAL PIECES CONTRIBUTED BY NON-JOURNAL SENTINEL WRITERS AND KEEP A RUNNING SCORE THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.


It should also be noted that this exercise is a categorization. Most, if not all of these articles submitted to, or solicited by the Crossroads staff are well-written, thoughtful, and provocative. I enjoy reading them as I have every Sunday for as long as I can remember. This weekly compilation is an ideological scorecard, not a writing critique.


TODAY'S LIBERAL PIECES

Herb Kohl: We can cover all Americans for less money  

“We must expand (health) coverage to all our citizens. And, again contrary to conventional wisdom, it will save us money to do so.”

And once again, shame on the MJS for not printing a side-by-side rebuttal. The paper has been fond of running George Will's columns, so why didn't it publish this today?


TODAY'S CONSERVATIVE PIECES

Michael Deane: Efficient, effective - and run privately 


NEITHER LIBERAL NOR CONSERVATIVE

Susan McGovern: Make motherhood safe for all 

Jerrianne Hayslett: Different time, different Iran 

Neil Hoffman: Time for action in support of arts in our city's schools 

I don’t disagree with Hoffman’s general premise, but shouldn’t he just come out and say he wants to spend more money? If he would have been that specific, this would have gone in the liberal column.


MJS SCORECARD:

TODAY: Liberal-1, Conservative-1

YEAR TO DATE: Liberal-51, Conservative-48
