Here’s yet another example straight from this morning’s front page of Triangle and Co. (Page 2B)
Your article lists about 200 people. Less than the 250 from the Life Chain rally on Sunday I referenced in a previous email to you. Much less than the 1000 people who march in downtown Raleigh every year for NC Right to Life that does not receive this type of coverage from your paper.
This story features a color photo and extensive story. I could not read the print edition version as the News and Observer failed to print the remainder of the story on Page 2B. Nothing was there.
As I mentioned, I am seeking to understand the standards for political/issue oriented news coverage.
Does Linda Williams, Senior Editor for News, make decisions on which stories receive coverage in the News and Observer?
I welcome a response and greater clarification.
