New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Twitter:
If censoring Huck Finn will help get a great book back on h.s. reading lists, isn’t that worth it?
If pasting FoxNews transcripts into the NYT will help get people to read it, isn’t that worth it?
Hell, even if it DOESN’T get people to read the NYT, it’s probably worth it.
FWIW, Murdoc probably wouldn’t feel the way he does about this if it hadn’t been for the past two decades of political correctness police running around getting all worried about all sorts of stupid crap. At some point people are going to say “enough is enough” and reject even the more reasonable PC thinking.
Murdoc’s “some point” was somewhere in the mid 1990s.
