In her new campaign against the L.A. Times and Michael Kinsley, Susan Estrich last week announced she was launching a website, latimesbias.org. As of Sunday night, it still wasn't working. Her latest syndicated column suggests that Kinsley's "days are numbered," but that appears to be wishful thinking on her part. For those who haven't followed it, the USC law professor's main beef is this:
I have spent the last year trying to convince the three men who run the opinion section of my local paper that there are, in fact, many great women thinkers in the community where I live, but they choose to publish none of them.
The only one to appear regularly on their pages does so in large part because I ran a campaign a few years ago to protect her column when management was trying to downgrade it.
The latter is a reference to Patt Morrison, whose column moved from the news section to op-ed.
