Democrat-Gazette to drop columnist Pat Lynch



I hear the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette is dropping Pat Lynch from its op-ed columnists lineup. That means Monday's installment will be his last weekly contribution, presuming it passes the censors. I have a note out to him seeking details.

Lynch was frequently a progressive voice in a space not distinguished by many. Maybe they'll balance the loss by dropping one of the right-wing cranks. You think?

Lynch will still fulminate, no doubt, on his blog and on his weekly appearance on Channel 4 with Tim Griffin's sock puppet (aka Bill Vickery).

UPDATE: Lynch confirms end of his column He says editorial page editor Paul Greenberg said the reason was economic. "I am not angry with Paul or anybody else," Lynch wrote.
