All publicity is good publicity, as long as they spell your name right!

I just noticed that Angry Bear is linked by Marvin Olasky’s blog. Yes, the Marvin Olasky. Journalism professor at Texas, sometimes called Bush’s “Christian Guru,” and coiner of the phrase “Compassionate Conservatism” as adopted by George Bush. A bit about his blog:

Posts are by Marvin Olasky, editor in chief; Ed Veith, cultural editor; Mindy Belz, international editor; Lynn Vincent, features editor; Bob Jones, national editor; and reporters Priya Abraham and John Dawson. We also draw on the insights of WORLD staffers Andrew Coffin and Ed Plowman, American Values president Gary Bauer, and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president Albert Mohler.

But Angry Bear isn’t the only one; here are the links in Olasky’s “Liberal” section of the blogroll (note the inclusion of the big media outlets):
