Kinsley Reportedly Out At L.A. Times

Editor & Publisher has the scoop on what looks like a demotion for Michael Kinsley, the short-lived top editorial gun of the L.A. Times. I don't pretend to cover this particular beat with any frequency (though Mickey Kaus and Patterico are excellent L.A. Times watchers), but I will say this - I like Kinsley: though I seldom agree with him, I find him a sincere advocate of the liberal position who is not afraid to buck the conventional wisdom; I also find him a frequently humorous writer of skill and ability. He's scheduled to stay on as a writer at the Times, but personally, I doubt it will happen that way. It's hard, pride-wise, to move backwards in an organization...
