Alex Knepper may have a penchant for the occasional uncouth sexual joke, but David Swindle's assertion that he represents a danger to children is entirely unwarranted -- and potentially libelous.

Tucker Carlson Launches "The Right's Answer to HuffPost" -- Why I Wish Him Nothing But the Best

Arianna Huffington

Tucker Carlson launched The Daily Caller today and asked me to write a post for his opening day. I said yes -- and not just because he told the Wall Street Journal he reads HuffPost every day! He says that he and his team are "trying to think through what comes next in journalism." As they do, I hope they'll keep in mind that one of the greatest contributions the digital media can make is to counter the traditional media's obsession with looking at every issue through the cobweb-covered lens of right vs. left. Anyone looking at today's political landscape with clear eyes can see that on issue after issue -- the war in Afghanistan, the bailout, health care, the war on drugs, etc, etc -- the binary division of the debate into right vs. left has become obsolete.
