Prize winners

Posted By on Sat, Jun 23, 2007 at 9:44 PM

Journalism contests. Silly. See the Dallas Press Club scandal. See today's announcement of the Morning News of Northwest Arkansas as the best newspaper in Arkansas, at least according to "sweepstakes" judging in the Arkansas Press Association contest. The Morning News is a good newspaper. It vigorously covers its turf. It competes energentically against the billionaire-backed NW edition of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. But, day in and day out, it's hard to say the AD-G, with its giant news hole and its enormous staff (particularly in this day of newspaper staff cuts), isn't the strongest paper in the state.

But, hey. These judges must know something. They gave us some prizes, too, including first-place coverage over the biggest dailies in the state for coverage of education (our staff: 8. the D-G staff: 250). And a first-place for in free-lance writing, among some other awards.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
