Who thinks they will tell the truth about the problems facing the 'news'paper ??

I have a months salary betting they do NOT point out the medias' miserable failure @ informing the population of the assault on America currently being waged by the socialists currently in control of Washington .

I am sure the truth will not even be mentioned. Editorials on the front page? Hello?

Steve Collins said...

NOT mine - The Bristol Press is a local, community newspaper. We don't cover what they do in Washington unless it is directly focused on Bristol. We have 2.5 reporters to cover Bristol. Surely you don't want them to spend their time writing about the president? There are thousands of others doing that already.

10:15 -- Front page editorials are a tradition in newspapers when the owner wants to make what he considers a vital point. While I don't necessarily agree with the editorial, I am glad that Mike Schroeder cares enough to get involved in a key issue for this community and to take a loud, clear stand on it. That's what a publisher should do.
