"LUS vs. Cox goes federal"

In a return to its he-said, she-said, sorta-kinda-neutral editorial policy on LUS Fiber the Advertiser runs a Saturday editorial on the exclusion of LUS from the national cable buying coop that manages to leave the vague impression that the Advertiser is piously favor of...of something good for our citizens. It sorta endorses whatever would be good without coming to any firm conclusion about just what that might be.

Come on...sure Cox is an advertiser who takes occasional full pages and all but really; no firm position on an obvious injustice? Where is the fire we saw late in the fiber fight? There was a time when the Advertiser had finally come to understand what was and wasn't to the advantage of their community—and as a consequence what was to their own advantage.

I'm not asking for much here, just a dose of enlightened self-interest that can see beyond next week's revenues. A newspaper can take its name all too seriously.


You can read it for yourself.
