Everyone's a media critic

Posted By on Thu, Jun 11, 2009 at 10:05 AM

Holocaust Museum shooting story (not just photo). Did it deserve to be on Page One of the Democrat-Gazette today with, or instead of, yet another Twittering story, yet another soldier training story, sheriffs who don't know about the Vienna convention (imagine that!) and a political consultant's contract. Blog reader comments:

While I was reading the DemGaz this a.m. I was struck that the front page only had a photo of the Holocaust Museum shooting at the lower right and the story was on page 2.  Is that typical?  I also read every letter to the editor and it sure does look like many, many Arkansans closely resemble the profile of that white supremacist feller.  Scary.  What in the hell are they so afraid of?  Anyway…

Your thoughts?

  • 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.
