Lying, willful ignorance or stupidity?

I'm not sure which category to put New York Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal in.

It is true that we don't have many conservative columnists on the Op-Ed page. Actually, right now, we have David Brooks, who gets to be the dunking target for a lot of readers because he's a Republican and a conservative. Most of our other columnists are clearly not either, although I would defy anyone to label Maureen Dowd by party affiliation or ideology. I've known her and worked closely with her for 20 years and I can't tell you the answer to either one.

Is he serious? Maureen Dowd is a left wing liberal who hasn't voted for a Republican for any elected office, from dog catcher on up, for her entire adult life.

I defy Maureen Dowd to prove me wrong. I've read, shudder, her columns for a handful of years and can tell you that.

Who does Rosenthal thinks buys that -- on the left or the right?

Talk about treating your readers like complete morons. And some people wonder why the business is going in the tank.

Doing some research and checked out @TheDispatchFC front page. It turns out the answer to every single one of these is "No." But one doesn't have that simple explanation on the main page. Why?
