Mark Steyn on Arthur Chrenkoff’s farewell to blogging:

Last year, at a time when the vast resources of the elite media had reduced Iraq either to one crummy town (Fallujah) or one crummy building (Abu Ghraib), Arthur Chrenkoff embarked on a heroic one-man crusade (whoops!) to ensure that all the other stories out of the country were rounded up and made part of the big picture. A new job means Arthur will now be hanging up his blogging boots. That’s a great loss, and I hope someone else – maybe even some enterprising newspaper editor – will attempt to carry on the fine work he did in his column.

Maybe a lefty blogger will take up the Good News cudgels, seeing as they’re so hot for “diversity of opinion” and “alternative views”. A favourite Chrenkoff moment came earlier this year, when Media Watch attacked him for lacking “credibility and prestige”; within days, Arthur appeared in the New York Times.

Arthur’s many online friends will miss his excellent commentary and tenacious research. Here’s to seeing him in comments from time to time, and an eventual return to blogdom.
