phplqle8xPM.jpgU2 frontman and political activist Bono has a new gig! Radar is reporting that the New York Times editorial page editor Andrew Rosenthal has hired him to write a handful of the paper's Op-Ed pages next year. He announced the news last night to students of Columbia's School of Journalism, following the "suspicious package" that was delivered to his office yesterday. Radar wonders if the news will off-set the recent right-leaning columns devoted to Sarah Palin, written by Bill Kristol (who Rosenthal dodged questions about last night), but a bigger question is whether Bono will be able to help keep the sinking Gray Lady afloat?
