Former N&O’er still cranking out excellent editorials

The current chief editorial writer for Raleigh’s News & Observer, Ned Barnett, has been doing an excellent job since taking over the position a few months back (click here for a great recent example).  But if you ever find yourself missing the insights of Barnett’s predecessor, Steve Ford, you will be happy to know that Ford is still producing some excellent essays over at the website of the North Carolina Council of Churches.  

This one from last Friday about the current state budget and tax debate is worth your time.

    They may be excellent, but fewer and fewer people are reading them as they have come to despise the liberal bias in the MSM. You can see this by the dire financial straits newspapers are in.

    Wow, two out right prevarications. One, the right is shrinking and the country is becoming more liberal by the day, it’s actually been suggested that the GOP should just hang out a sign saying closed for repairs. Second, the internet has hurt newspapers. Two wrongs make one conservatroll.
