Millions of women marched all over the world for women’s rights, and The Union chose to “lede” the newspaper with a right-to-life march that drew 25 locals in San Francisco, as we reported previously. The other event, which drew Nevada County residents to Washington, D.C., was the “off-lede, centerpiece.” Go figure!
This lopsided news judgment came after Terry McLaughlin, an extreme right-wing local who writes a twice monthly column for The Union, promoted the right-to-life event in her own column.
So what does The Union do? It runs a self-congratulatory letter from Terry McLaughlin this weekend thanking “The Union and new City Editor Ross Maak” for “fair coverage.”
As if that makes it all right. You can’t make this stuff up! Podunk.com.
