The Atlantic magazine hired conservative columnist Kevin Williamson as a contributor March 22. Liberal outlets are already calling for his firing.
Williamson is a veteran columnist from National Review. He’s one of four people The Atlantic tapped to head up its new ‘Ideas’ section wherein writers discuss the political philosophies of the day. It doesn’t matter to the writers at Slate and The New Republic that liberals outnumber Williamson on the page three to one — even a single conservative is too many.
