I haven't mentioned Patterico in a while

That's because I can't keep up with his indefatigable blogging. (I do read every post though.) I would be remiss, however, if I didn't point you to his latest effort to inject some fairness and — dare we say it? — honesty into the LA Times. He is actually interviewing LA Times editor, Bob Sipchen.

The Times recently activated an "Outside the Tent" column that offers space to critics of the Times to take the Times to task for their sins of omission or commission. Patterico has been a contributor. It's difficult to think of any blogger who has done more to benefit the public, through his thorough and diligent review of the Times, than Patterico. Outside the Tent, I would like to think, is a direct result of his persistence.

My hat is off to him.
