    "The easy answer is global corporations want Trump out of the White House. He disrupted the new world order and society’s conversion from patriarchy to matriarchy.

    I’m not sure I fully buy the easy answer. I don’t know what I believe at this point. I’m as perplexed as the next man or woman."

    I guess when you can't get make it work at ESPN and FOX, you have to sink to this level of brain-dead to keep cashing checks.

    It sounds like a child discussing politics.

    Why read Twitter when I can get nitwit politics elsewhere

    Jason Whitlock is not Mike Royko, but, then, no one is. You can't be a Mike Royko today, and write the things Royko wrote, at times strongly criticizing the left or Democratic-led administrations the way he did. A city columnist can't do that today. You criticize the left at the peril of your own job unless you work for a right-wing media organization.

    please identify the “city columnists” that are on your regular reading list.

    John Kass is a columnist for the Chicago Tribune and has never met a Democrat he liked, either in Illinois or Washington.

    I do think the few remaining city columnists tend to steer away from politics because they want to be perceived as a bipartisan figure. Could you imagine Mitch Albion getting on either side of a divisive issue. Those guys want everyone to love them.

    Obviously it's not diverse enough. Who do I need to be reading?

    I've never worked for a liberal publisher/administrator in two decades plus. That includes the government.

    Those individuals did not seem to mind at all if you took pot shots at libs.

    Anecdotal sure, but it's all I have to go on.

    Save the conspiracies for the next rally that draws less than a Wiggles concert.

    I am not sure who I should read. But I would like to sample more city columnists. Because of cutbacks the papers I read have largely eliminated the position. I would like to check some out.

    The next left-of-center publisher I meet will be the first. The idea that the media is liberal is one of the great strawmen of all-time. Are most writers left-of-center? Of course. That's what being educated and compassionate gets you. But writers turning the media liberal would be like foot soldiers determining foreign policy. Of course, anyone who says the media is liberal is too stupid to be swayed this way, soooo...
