11/12/2005: One of my Favorite Columnists is *moving*
"On Friday I was fired as a columnist by the publisher of the Los Angeles Times, where I have worked for thirty years. The publisher, Jeff Johnson, who has offered not a word of explanation to me, has privately told people that he hated every word that I wrote. I assume that mostly refers to my exposing the lies used by President Bush to justify the invasion of Iraq.
Fortunately sixty percent of Americans now get the point, but only after tens of thousand of Americans and Iraqis have been killed and maimed as the carnage spirals out of control. My only regret is that my pen was not sharper and my words tougher.
Starting Wednesday morning, my column will be appearing here on the Huffington Post."
--Robert Scheer On Leaving the LA Times.
Well, *something* has been going on at the LA Times for quite a while. But Mr. Scheer will be a great addition to the Huffington Post.
We look forward to reading his most excellent columns there!
