Butthurt at The Mayo Mouthpiece

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.

    HOORAY!!!!
    It is good news indeed that the News Tar was not awarded the pronouncement from the king.

    Walter, you are correct that the print mode of communication is the buggywhip of our day and it is so appropriate that this be declared on your sixth anniversary. Congratulations!

    While I, for the most part, am not a fan or Darwin, I can see merit to his “survival of the fittest” when it comes to print. A medium jumped the shark 15 years ago.

    Congratulations on 6 years! May there me 60 more…

    I know people who suffer from butthurt when they first learn there is no legal remedy for butthurt.

    You attack the council and you are not awarded the official journal. Why cannot Cathy understand this concept. Who wants to read a very biased paper. Its not news.
