In last week's online interview
with new City Paper
publisher Albie Del Favero, there was this exchange:
GARRIGAN: In terms of an ideological slant, can we expect the paper to be left, right, middle, what?
DEL FAVERO: I think you can expect us to be moderately right.
In Tuesday's City Paper
, there was this editorial
Tennesseans could benefit greatly from having one of their own as leader of the free world....Frist has been an exemplary leader in the U.S. Senate, both as a legislator and as majority leader. His approach to governing cuts against the Beltway grain as he often takes a slower and more analytical approach than career politicians. It would be good to have a Tennessean in the White House. It would also be good for America to have someone like Frist in the nation's highest office who sees and understands America from a different perspective than the usual Washington, D.C., suspects.
I'm not quite sure what "perspective" the City Paper
thinks Frist sees America from, but it's hard to imagine that many would label it "moderate." Moderately right? More like moderately scary.
