We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Every media outlet is "moderate" to its intended audience. If it can capture enough eyeballs to pay its favored clique, it will survive.
There are a lot of people in NYC, and a lot of people worldwide who think they need to know what the NYT says. Their number is diminishing daily, but it will take a long time. Sneering and talking down to people still works to keep liberals in line, remember.
