The world of entertainment celebrates the crossover. When a comedic actor makes the shift to dramatic roles or when a country music star successfully cracks the mainstream charts, it is thought of as broader recognition of their talents.

One would hope the same mindset exists for journalists. However, judging by the reaction from some quarters when National Review’s Kevin Williamson announced he was leaving the magazine founded by William F. Buckley to write for The Atlantic, many liberals were apoplectic.

How dare this publication they adore hire someone with a viewpoint not in lockstep with theirs?
