Who Knew We Had Such Power?

Wednesday, October 10, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

From The Daily Mole, courtesy of The Rake, concerning the ever-shrinking-in-influence-and-audience Minneapolis Star Tribune:

As one Strib veteran tells the Mole, “The right-wing blog voices that were bashing the paper a couple of years ago, Hugh Hewitt and the rest, have gotten pretty much everything they wanted. The GOP wanted the Minnesota Poll gone, and now it’s gone. They wanted to get rid of people like [editorial board members] Jim Boyd and Susan Albright and their editorial policy, and they’ve succeeded at that. Now there won’t be editorials about the war and global warming; they’ll write about local issues like zoning conflicts in Coon Rapids instead. They wanted the paper to hire a conservative columnist, and they got that. From here on out, it looks like the Strib becomes the conservative, suburbs-oriented paper, and the Pioneer Press will become the paper of the city underdogs and the blue voters. They may wind up getting pushed more to the left.”

“The rest” must mean Powerline and the others among the Northern Alliance of Blogs –destroyers of civilization on the northern plains, feared tribe of blogging savages, trivia players at Keegan’s.

UPDATE: Ed Morrissey has more on the embittered remnants of the once all-powerful, all-knowing Strib elite.
