Moving On

This is my last entry on the “colored” issue. I’m moving my campaign to change the News-Leader to the paper’s web site. Yeah, I know. Good luck with that.

Here’s a link to my blog on the News-Leader site.

Today’s post,  entitled What is Opinion Journalism, sets up the work I intend to do there — a paragraph-by-paragraph, withering critique of their amateur pundits. My purpose is to make plain just how bad these columns are, how poor the editing is, and how much the News-Leader is failing these writers (whose desire to write I support 100%). The News-Leader is also failing the community and the primary purpose of journalism.

I am operating under no illusion that the News-Leader will care.

    Great, another blog. One that requires registration no less! And a survey!

    I think I see the lights at Rhetorica slowly dimming and fading out.

    Tim… Well, the one on the NL site is a temporary project 🙂 Rhetorica will soldier on. But I think I may need to make some more changes. The current focus isn’t doing it for me. Stay tuned.
