The Hill, off-center

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

Twice in the past week, The Hill has called GOP Rep. Peter Roskam a member of his party's "centrist" wing. But Progress Illinois points out:

According to the well-respected Poole-Rosenthal ideological scoring system for the 110th Congress, Roskam was the 66th most conservative member of Congress. He's no "centrist."

Just another indication that the news media has no idea where the "center" is.
