Like most all welfare recipients that have a well-developed sense of entitlement, today The (Monroe, LA) News Star – aka The Mayo Mouthpiece – is suffering an acute case of butthurt over not getting their “fair share” of milk from the taxpayer tit.
The Mouthpiece’s Executive Editor is unhappy that they weren’t selected as the “official journal” for the City of Monroe at last Tuesday’s council meeting. Throwing around charges of “racism,” the editor just can’t get over the concept that a duly elected legislative body should not be a rubber stamp for the executive.
See here the opinion piece.
In our very first posting six years ago tomorrow, we opined that the concept of an “official journal” for a governmental entity is nothing but welfare, and often leads to a cozy relationship between politicians and those who report on what they do, or do not do. Public notices can and should be posted on the internet, since there are many more people who own computers and surf the web, than subscribe to newspapers.
