Peter Suderman is calling
for better conservative journalism:

An American reading unaffiliated newspapers or magazines is likely to encounter talented liberal writers and thinkers, and significantly less likely to encounter journalists from the conservative or libertarian right. So far the right’s response to this bias has understandably been to create our own outlets for opinion and analysis, a project that has been quite successful.
But it isn’t fated that unaffiliated publications must be de facto liberal, and the right ought to endeavor to prove it.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
