The difference between news and opinion in Duncanville

Filed under: Duncanville — cedarhilleditor @ 7:56 pm

First, a blog is normally a journal of opinion, not news. That’s why an earlier blog post here doesn’t have quotes.

Second, regarding the Duncanville tea party, there is a news story in this week’s issue of the paper, in the appropriate spot on the news pages. (And, contrary to just writing what I want to, there’s this thing called “quote marks.” You can find them multiple times in that story, and I’m not quoting myself.

As for Paul Ford, well, even if people think we should have given splashier coverage to his arrest, I’m sure his backers will be out in force at tonight’s candidate forum.

Third, this is why Today instituted its “clear week” policy the last week before local elections.
