Eric Alterman: TIME magazine columnists are "obsessively abusive to liberals"
In recent years, Time, America's largest-circulation newsweekly, winner of the 2006 National Magazine Award for General Excellence, and undoubtedly the nation's most influential magazine, has morphed into a kind of glossy sibling to the Wall Street Journal.

But its opinion pages are filled with vitriol, anger and abuse, almost always directed at liberals.
