editor. Not interested in facts
"Alexander Konetzki is a liberal who decided to start his journalism career as an assistant editor at The American Conservative."
He explains why he quit.
the editor Scott McConnell said,
"Yeah, look, Alexander, this matter has already been decided. The piece is being published as it is." I pointed out that I had read the book, and Sailer's characterization of Obama was factually incorrect. "I have too many other things to worry about," Scott said coldly. "Steve Sailer is a longtime friend of the magazine, and if you and he read a book differently, well, I'll take his reading over yours any day."
The debate is about what is written in a book which is physically present in the office. The editor decided based on who is a "longtime friend of the magazine" without glancing at the text of the book.
"“We have to show our readers that we’re a conservative magazine,” Kara often told me, “not the NationLite.” Indeed, they did."
OK. But does conservative mean racist, uninterested in facts, or both ?
