"24": Liberal or Conservative, in TNR

Chris Orr had a cover story in last week's New Republic on the politics of "24," which mostly stuck to what I wrote in my landmark blog post of last year.

Orr disputes the common notion that "24" is a conservative show, by rightly pointing out that the show is mostly apolitical, and that while it is conservative in some ways (it's hard-nosed in confronting terrorism, willing to torture, etc.), but liberal in others (heroic Democratic president, oil- and big-business industry baddies, etc.) Orr's conclusion is so close to mine that it makes me wonder if he read my piece while researching his.
