Stephens publisher ripped

Posted By on Tue, Mar 30, 2010 at 9:33 AM

Sherman Frederick isn't a household name in Arkansas, but he's an important one. He's the publisher of the Las Vegas Review Journal, the crown jewel in the far-flung media properties -- including newspapers in Arkansas -- controlled by Little Rock financier Warren Stephens. Frederick is president of Stephens Media.


Frederick got a pasting from Media Matters recently for columns attacking President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid, health legislation and others (global warming, for example). Research concluded he'd played loose with the facts. (Frederick's columns are linked from the arkansasnews.com website operated by Stephens Media.)

The research prompted more remarks -- pro and con -- about Frederick. Local angle:

Asked for his view, Stephens Inc. President Warren Stephens defended Frederick, stating: "I think he is doing quite well. All reporters make mistakes."

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
