Sullivan endorsed John Kerry for president last October in a New Republic editorial (a magazine that, by the way, is as much a "liberal" magazine as the Weekly Standard is "conservative").
In Kornblut's main article, she terms TNR "the Standard's more liberal counterpart." Why can't the Times simply call the liberal New Republic magazine "the liberal New Republic magazine," the way it does when discussing the "conservative" Weekly Standard?
Didn't Charles Krauthammer himself write for the New Republic? Yes he did, the poseur!
Here's Sullivan's response.
