A conservative columnist for the Chronicle?
I spoke with Chronicle editorial page editor James Howard Gibbons who said he wants to hire a local conservative columnist to put in the mix of staff columnists. Stay tuned for more details.
That would be quite a development, if Gibbons actually follows through.
Still, we'd settle for a web-savvy columnist who might be willing to shake things up a little -- say, this guy or this guy. They both have journalism backgrounds, after all, and newspapers like that. Plus they're wicked writers (and I like that).
If you have any suggestions for the Chronicle, feel free to leave a comment on Campbell's blog.
