It appears that KCRW's Left, Right and Center has quietly added Byron York, White House correspondent for the National Review and author of next year's The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, as the show's new conservative pundit. There's been no press release, but he shows up in a group photo today on the show's website. The previous Rightie, Clifford May, lasted one show as a regular and pissed off the co-moderators and listeners so much he had to go. We'll listen in at 2:30 p.m. to see if York is announced on today's show. [* He was introduced as "special guest.] Martini Republic, meanwhile, shudders at the thought of York.
