In regards to the article title

In regards to the title of this article, the phrase "Liberal media conservative" gets me 137 google hits, only one of which--this one--seems to be germane to the topic at hand. Suggest perhaps changing it to "token conservative," which more accurately describes the intended phenomenon with more commonly-used terminology (179,000 hits) MichaelHWC 00:19, 12 November 2009 (EST)

I think you have a point. --Jpatt 00:31, 12 November 2009 (EST)
I agree. we like google hits :) RJJensen 01:06, 12 November 2009 (EST)


Does he count? I never see him write on evolution or abortion - he's a foreign policy columnist, and he is a foreign policy conservative.

He has written on evolution and abortion; I have provided citations. DavidE 11:21, 9 May 2011 (EDT)
Ah, so he has. Thanks for finding the citations and responding quickly. KingHanksley 12:57, 9 May 2011 (EDT)

Hugh Hewitt

I don't think we should add Hewitt here yet, but it was just announced that he would be getting his own show on MSNBC, show it might be a good idea to see if his views shift like those of the other liberal "conservatives". --1990'sguy (talk) 15:29, 22 June 2017 (EDT)

Despite supporting Trump, Hewitt does support a bipartisan health care deal, despite other conservatives strongly rejecting that.[1] --1990'sguy (talk) 23:50, 19 July 2017 (EDT)
Also, liberals seem to have a high view of him, calling him a "moderate": [2] --1990'sguy (talk) 17:56, 5 August 2017 (EDT)
It seems that Hewitt favors the establishment,[3] meaning that he is at least on the verge of being included here. However, even favoring the GOP establishment is more conservative than many of the people listed here. Hewitt is not calling for Trump's impeachment and does not openly, at least, prefer leftists as President. --1990'sguy (talk) 15:10, 7 August 2017 (EDT)

Evan McMullin

It seems like this article discusses liberals in the media who pose as "conservatives." I would like to add Evan McMullin, but I don't think he involves himself much in the media, other than Twitter (but social media is different from the news media). But maybe I'm wrong and it would be appropriate to add him? --1990'sguy (talk) 19:51, 21 November 2017 (EST)

Nicole Wallace

Nicole Wallace is another possible token conservative to add (the reason I said "possible" is because I don't know if she still claims to be conservative): [4] --1990'sguy (talk) 21:26, 14 November 2019 (EST)
