What a difference...
..it makes when you change the person in charge of an editorial page.
Unlike Heraldo, I don't think the Eureka Reporter has always skewed their news stories to parrot the Arkley line. But the first editorial that came out after the Reporter hired that Hannaford guy to take over their editorial page did raise my eyebrows since it was a 180 from the Reporter's prior editorials about Iraq.
Now we see it again with another glowing report on Iraq in the Reporter's editorial column. Looks like this might be a prominent, if not permanent, change in what we read in the Eureka Reporter from now on. I can't help but wonder if Hannaford was hired for one reason only: To send the right message in the Reporter's editorials. I've discounted others that have accused the Reporter of bias before, but this might be the real thing.
Not that there's necessarily anything wrong with that. After all, we're just talking editorials here. Everybody's entitled to an opinion.
