I remember that guy..  I also remember him getting slow-roasted for some
less kind (and less informed) words.  I don't regularly read his column,
has he gotten a clue since, or is he pandering to various interests in
each column still?

I'd rather not be represented by a shill, even if he's saying what I'd
like to hear.  If he's done his homework and actually believes what he's
writing, that's another matter entirely.
