Dr. Laura Writes the News

Dr. Laura, sacred cow. On October 10, the News-Press ran an editorial, though not marked as such, on the front page of their paper. It was a diatribe against Obama’s Nobel Prize by Dr. Laura Schlessinger. I found it to be a tragic barometer of the continued deterioration of our local paper. Nothing but pictures, police blotter, and days-old wire stories. Now they print editorials on the front page. Of course, one cannot challenge Dr. Laura’s unfailingly biased opinions, as they will not print a reply expressing derision of their sacred cow. One has to wonder if their understanding of the news industry, the editorials in particular, is so primitive that they fail understand what an editorial is and where it belongs.-Don Adams
