Fair and balanced

Posted By on Tue, Jul 17, 2007 at 8:54 AM

A couple more words on the intervention motion filed yesterday by Little Rock School District residents who don't like the democratic process when it's controlled by black School Board members:

This political document, legally dubious (and reminiscent of the loser of a suit the same lawyer once brought when he had a client unhappy with a School Board decision by the Maumelle charter school) cites no plausible cause of legal action, unless you count dissatisfaction with decisions by a democratically elected Board.  And such a filing LEADS the daily newspaper? Hey, DOG, your partiality is showing.

I don't really mind the British model of newspapering, in which story selection, news play, etc., reflect editorial viewpoints. What I mind is the hypocrisy of those who preach one thing (strict separation of opinion and news, for example) and do another.

  • UPDATE: Hutchinson moves to cover himself on cut to War Memorial Stadium

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
