David Shaw Dies

Filed under: Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 11:41 pm



David Shaw has died. We bloggers poked some fun at his claims about the four experienced Times editors who reviewed everything he said. (We’ll have to have a brief moratorium on that joke for a respectful period of time.) But we should recognize that he did some good work — including, notably, a 1990 series on leftist media bias on abortion. Leftist apologists for Big Media, like Eric “What Liberal Media?” Alterman, found it impossible to deny the force of Shaw’s arguments, so thorough was his research. Good stuff.

Best wishes to Shaw’s family, and may he rest in peace.
