I'm not going crazy -- it's just Philly.com!
Philly.com, the most popular news web site in Philadelphia, announced today that it is launching “The New Voices” initiative, which will feature notable national and local contributors and columnists. Covering a range of topics and viewpoints, the new columnists include:
Ari Rabin-Havt, the nation’s most exciting new progressive commentator; Philadelphia’s own John Featherman with his unique and penetrating conservative viewpoints; Mark Segal, one of the region’s and nation’s most compelling gay leaders and the publisher of Philadelphia Gay News will add topical commentary in a new column entitled, Mark, uncensored; Kenny Gamble, a Philadelphia cultural and business giant; Table Matters blogger Jason Wilson; leading interior designer Carrie Leskowitz; Dr. Jill McDevitt, a nationally recognized sexologist; technology pundit Eric Smith, co-founder of Geekadelphia; activist Chris Goldstein who writes about the issues surrounding marijuana; Maria Papadakis whose videos will cover the local social scene and celebrities; and Bernie Parent, an inspiring member of the NHL Hall of Fame who writes about self-empowerment and motivation.
I'm just glad this list is going to finally put to rest the ridiculous complaint that Philly.com and the two newspapers are too liberal.
