NYT opinion editor Andy Rosenthal’s hiring of conservative Bill Kristol causes leftoid anger:

Rosenthal told Politico shortly after the official announcement Saturday that he fails to understand “this weird fear of opposing views.”

“The idea that The New York Times is giving voice to a guy who is a serious, respected conservative intellectual — and somehow that’s a bad thing,” Rosenthal added. “How intolerant is that?”

Sounds like he’s just learned something about his readers.

UPDATE! The Art Sulzberger memo announcing Kristol’s frightening appointment.
