The Post and Whatshisname

Jonathan Tasini

About that slightly surreal New York Post editorial in defense of Jonathan Tasini and his right to debate Hillary Clinton on NY1

Before today, we noticed after some perfuntory Nexis-ing, the Post mentioned Tasini’s candidacy exactly once — an 80-word story about his interview with Room 8 in which he was outspokenly critical of Israel.

They did mention him three other times in 2001, when he led a lawsuit against the The Times on behalf of some aggrieved freelance writers.

As for why the editorial board wants to see Hillary debate this guy, your guess is probably as good as mine.
