I subscribe to the Timberjay newspaper for its insights and excellence in investigative reporting. Your honors are well deserved. My wife subscribes to the Cook paper because, well, I really can’t say. But I enjoy and look forward to both - one more for its informative value and the other more for its humor, especially but not exclusively in the editor’s notes. I do not think it’s a newspaper’s job to report good news or bad news, only THE news, with as much accuracy and as little bias as possible, letting the reader sort it out.
It’s the sorting it out that’s usually the fun and/or the funniest part once you appreciate the bias. Which reminds me, I sure enjoyed the substance of the letter from Barry Tungseth (Ely) about wilderness rescue in the Opinion section of last week’s newspaper.
