Even the Daily News Has Doubts

The New York Daily News, whose office building doubles as Superman’s Daily Planet in the movies, is one of the nation’s dependably liberal newspapers, not always as whacko as the New York Times, but hardly ever perceiving anything wrong with a liberal-socialist proposal.

My thanks to Tom Emerson for emailing the link to an opinion column by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Michael Goodwin, who previously served as The News’ Executive Editor and Editorial Page Editor.  His essay takes a rare clear-eyed view from the far-left-wing.
