Quote of the Week


‘Mr. von Wiesenberger, if you have such disdain for your journalists, why are you co-publisher of a newspaper?’

— Rev. Tina Grant, responding to a letter from News-Press co-publisher Arthur von Wiesenberger. In the letter, von Wiesenberger dismissed reporters who complained about ethical transgressions at the paper as “so-called journalists,” and noted that reporters are held in even lower esteem than politicians and lawyers.
