Fred Reed answers what are columnists 43

] is a great writer. I have read many of his articles, spent time on his website and gone back into his literary vaults. He wrote posts in the 1980’s that explain the future we are in now.
This is from his post COLUMINISTS from last week. Somewhere in its middle is this paragraph, “Columnists are often said to be opinion leaders, but in secret moments of honesty we know we aren’t. No. We are shameless panders. Like manufacturers of dog food we produce an expected product, of only sufficient quality that the dog does not actually die. Almost never do we change anyone’s mind.”
