Nov 2, 2010: Slate: No. 28: Andrew Malcolm Andrew Malcolm is a political blogger for the L.A. Times, where his job is to craft every story in such a way that maximizes its chances of getting linked to by Matt Drudge. He is the primary editor of the Times' Top of the Ticket blog, which does not advertise itself as a conservative blog.
A veteran foreign and national correspondent, Andrew Malcolm joined Investor's Business Daily October 2011. He formerly served on the L.A. Times Editorial Board and was a Pulitzer finalist in 2004. He is the author of 10 nonfiction books and father of four.
Nov 2, 2010: Alex Pareene posted an article about Malcom on Salon. The subtitle:"The Drudge-baiting conservative L.A. Times news blogger." Pareene skewers Malcolm: "Malcolm's snide disdain for every living liberal politician and media member would probably be no big deal if it weren't for the fact that he's the editor of an ostensibly objective L.A. Times news blog, not some punk writing for the Weekly Standard or BigGovernment.com. Malcolm notoriously finds poll numbers newsworthy only when they're good for Republicans. He's a reliable Sarah Palin apologist. But, again, his biggest crime -- besides his official portrait -- is that the Times allows him to masquerade as a regular news blogger instead of your bog-standard right-wing crank."
