Mark Steyn-War Pig on Washington Journal
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 06:46 AM by acmejack
From wiki
snip>
Steyn was born in Toronto, educated at King Edward's School, Birmingham, England, but dropped out of education at 16 and returned to Canada to work as a disc jockey. He is of mixed Jewish and Catholic descent on his father's side and Belgian Catholic on his mother's side; he was baptized a Catholic, confirmed an Anglican, and currently attends a small rural American Baptist Church. <2> His first break in journalism came when he was hired as the musical theatre critic for the then newly-established The Independent in London in 1986 (his first review was for The Phantom Of The Opera). In 1992 he became film critic for The Spectator (then owned by the Hollinger group). After a number of years writing predominantly about the arts, his portfolio widened to embrace political comment and he moved to The Daily Telegraph, a conservative-leaning London broadsheet (also then owned by the Hollinger group). Steyn became a close ally of former Canadian and Hollinger chief Conrad Black, and subsequently wrote for many of Black's newspapers.

He is unusual among political writers because of his lack of college education and his sideways move from arts criticism into punditry. This move may have been precipitated by a conflict between Steyn and Hollinger over his status in the mid-90s: Steyn's movie reviews temporarily disappeared from their pages and when he returned, Steyn had been made a senior contributing editor for Hollinger Inc. Publications, senior North American columnist for Britain's Telegraph Group, and North American editor for The Spectator.

1. Foreigners having influence over US foreign policy
This assclown, David Frum, Danielle Pletka, etc. They should not be in any position to influence American foreign policy in any way. They are not even Americans. The framers of the Constitution were rightly worried about this.
