A little over two weeks ago, Ron Paul made a morning appearance on Fox and Friends and made a slightly controversial statement that was talked about (a little bit) in the blogosphere well into the next evening.Â Pretty sticky story, huh?
Now, as far as newspapers go, our local New Sentinel is pretty forward thinking and aware when it comes to blogs and online media.Â I’d wager to say they are ahead of the curve.Â So why did they wait until January 3 to publish an editorial on Dr. Paul’s comments?Â Did it take that long to pen an opinion?Â I mean, it may be better than I could do, but it isn’t that well written.Â Countless people wrote about this within a couple of hours.
I realize Mr. Korda doesn’t have editorials posted very often, which actually makes this column even more disappointing.Â If you’re going to have me sit on the edge of my seat for two weeks waiting on an editorial, at least give me something timely.
I’m a little embarrassed for all of the Ron Paul supporters who bothered writing responses defending him over a story this ancient.Â The fact that the entire column is based on a comment taken out of context is nothing when you consider that George Korda must have spent most of the Christmas and New Year’s holidays carving it into a slab of stone with hammer and chisel.
If you’re wondering why the newspaper industry is having problems…
