Why I No Longer Read Newspapers

… and haven’t for a long time. I got disenchanted several years ago when the editorial pages of the local paper, The Las Vegas Review-Journal became infested with knee-jerk Tea-Bagger rhetoric. I’m in Denver with Ian at my in-laws house for a wedding and they get the Denver Post every morning. I had forgotten how “red state” newspaper journalism is in Colorado. Of course, the Post is a MediaNews Group newspaper. Not so divergent from the Ganett Group that the R-J is part of. Perhaps it is that way everywhere. Whew.

Yes, I’m keeping my opinions to myself! Family harmony and all that.
