Gannetoids Continue March to Irrelevance

Perhaps the only reason to spend the dollar to buy a copy of Gannett’s The (Shreveport, LA) Times is no longer there.

Vicki Welborn, a 15 1/2 year veteran with the paper, and one of but a handful of investigative reporters in Louisiana, left last month to take a job at KTBS-TV3.

Our readers will recall Welborn’s on-target reporting at Gibsland, LA and Homer, LA, that was key to uncovering the public malfeasance in those towns.

She also uncovered malfeasance at the DeSoto DA’s office, and reported on former BESE member Walter Lee’s problems.

Knowing Gannett’s historical reluctance to cover government wrongdoing, we suspect they were uncomfortable having a reporter on staff that actually knew how to do investigative reporting. The (Monroe, LA) News Star didn’t earn the nickname “Mayo Mouthpiece” for nothing.

KTBS has gained a valuable resource with Welborn. We wish her well.

      So says another Trumper. How do you know when Donald J. is lying? His lips are moving.

    From the headline question, I was afraid they took the crossword puzzle out; imagine my relief when I read the article.

    The News Star is best used in a John.
