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."

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
