Early release of D-G endorsement

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 7:02 AM

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette apparently favors candidates it supports with early viewing of endorsement editorials. Or it did for Charlie Wood, candidate for re-election to the Pulaski County School Board. He posted it on his Facebook page. It was later removed, but not before someone grabbed a screenshot. You need not plow through all the words. Charlie hates the union. He gets the nod. Here's his opponent, Gloria Lawrence, a long-time teacher. She doesn't sound like the devil. Charlie, give back that iPad.

Board member Danny Gilliland, another union hater, presumably has a similar tribute coming.

UPDATE FROM BIZARRO WORLD: It develops that the editorial Wood posted was written by himself and suggested to the D-G as its editorial endorsement, which has not been forthcoming. Strange fellow.
