Here we go again, another liberal prospective on The Herald’s political balance. (“Schwab a balance to Krauthammer.”) I have two comments about the writer’s comments. First, Charles Krauthammer is an American Pulitzer Prize–winning syndicated columnist, political commentator, and physician. His comments are straightforward regarding his conservative beliefs. He doesn’t call liberals derogatory names or lash out at them, but he does present the facts as he sees them whether you agree or not.
Sid Schwab is a physician, political junkie, liberal, cynic in the Puget Sound. He refers to conservatives with innuendos and derogatory name calling references. Their respective backgrounds speak volumes about their writing achievements. Their only similarity seems to be they are both physicians. Secondly, I agree with the writer that we should balance Schwab with Krauthammer. OK, we then need a balance for Eugene Robinson and Froma Harrop. How about a column written by Hannity and O’Reilly (assuming we could get them to write a weekly column for the Herald.) Now that is what I call balance.
