LA Times Columnist Joel "I Don't Support Our Troops" Stein Defends His Column

January 25th, 2006 3:07 PM

A day after igniting furor over his Los Angeles Times column that began, "I don't support our troops," Joel Stein is still defending the piece and says he has no regrets about writing it.

Reuters news service interviewed Stein,

"Asked if he had regrets, [Stein] said: 'No, because I'm against the war. (I have no regrets) if this helps us get out of that war and bring our troops home safely'."

The Reuters interview is published a day after a grilling interview of Stein by conservative Los Angeles radio host Hugh Hewitt. A full transcript and audio is available at Radio Blogger. For a unique insight into a sheltered, out-of-touch, Hollywood-liberal mindset, the interview is a must-read/must-listen. Check it out.
