Editions of both the Mendota Beacon and the Madison Observer came out today.
In the Mendota Beacon, I saw the following headlines: Referendum Unlikely to Impact War, Truth of Havens Center Revealed, and International ANSWER raises disturbing questions - all outside the Op-Ed pages. I seem to remember seeing something in the last issue about the Beacon's mission involving objective reporting, but maybe I'm remembering things wrong. I could find no such declaration in the pages of the most recent issue.
Then I see they've excerpted one of my blog entries, putting it on the same page as a sample of Ann Althouse's work. I immediately feel bad for my negative reaction to the headlines. Uh, thanks anyway, guys!
Meanwhile, the Observer (liberal paper) is highlighting how out of touch some liberals are, I think unintentionally. Their front page features a picture of a protester with a sign, "The World Can't Wait/ Drive Out the Bush Regime/ Mobilize for November 2." From the sponsoring group's website, it seems they think they can force Bush to resign by organizing a really big protest. Uh huh. (Coincidentally, Amba just wrote a piece on the folly of modern protesters).
Oh, and to end this on a positive note, the Daily Cardinal carried an Op-Ed on what looks like a sound compromise on voter ID.
