Tipper Gore for President? Maybe not, but we'll bet you can't guess which national political weekly defended the controversial PMRC leader (and music industry critic) in a stirring lead editorial from its new issue. The National Review? The American Spectator?
Try the once-liberal New Republic, which continues its rightward drift with an Allan Bloomesque essay titled "The Culture of Apathy," which decries lives ruined by the "ethos of anything goes, " complains that our cities are "centers of barbarism" and dubs TV "a Walpurgisnacht of value-neutral brutality."
