Followers of all things NCGA know McClatchy’s Insider publication well. It focuses quite a bit on the goings-on around Jones Street.

Um, yeah. Conservative are going to get a *real* fair shake from Ms. Horsch. I can remember my days with the drive-by media where I was frequently told that my ties to Jesse Helms and other conservative entities would make me persona non grata in “mainstream” professional media. (Even so, I still got bylines and airtime with ABC News, People magazine, Westwood One radio, NBC Mutual Radio, and US News & World Report, among others.) Apparently, these days, hanging out on the fringes of the radical left is NO SWEAT.
