LA Times Op-Ed Page Finds Common Ground: Liberals Are Pricks

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


Today the LA Times has a paired set of op-eds: Diana Wagman’s “Why liberals can’t talk to conservatives” (in blue!) is splashed across the page from Charlotte Allen’s “Why conservatives can’t talk to liberals” (in red!). And guess what? Ironically, it turns out that liberals and conservatives actually agree about this. It’s because liberals are assholes.

Note to Times op-ed editor: The next time you hire someone to present the liberal side of things, please choose someone other than Wagman. I assure you she doesn’t speak for all of us. Thanks.
