Wanted: New headline writer for the N&O
Okay, it’s easy to take potshots at Raleigh’s News & Observer these days, but dadgummit, they have got to, at least, get some new headline writers.
In fairness, the latter inaccurate headline was more of a function of a poor article that attempted to portray raising more tax revenue — something that was only a part of the Together NC message yesterday and that states are doing just about everywhere right now — as some kind of a novel or radical idea.
As for the former, however, you’d think that the paper simply lifted something out of a press release from the Senator’s office. “Stands tall”? How about “Burr does what he is told by hometown industry: Blocks federal action to protect lives and health.”
