The Bull-wark

“I think the need for a rational, non-Trumpist forum was more urgent than ever,” Sykes added. “And I do think that contrary to some of the conventional wisdom, there is a market for center-right commentary that pushes back against Trumpism.”
Charlie Sykes will serve as editor-in-chief, and Kristol will be an editor-at-large.   A new internet opinion journal and news aggregator, or should we say aggravator?   Of course, favorable coverage for this “center-right” dreck is found at CNN:
