Pre-K Update

The Nashville City Paper has an editorial endorsing Bredesen's Pre-K Frankenstein. Bill Hobbs points out that the reporting on Bredesen proposals still shows bias (and he's nailed the reporter for The Tennessean on this one by her own admission). Of course, isn't this what we have come to expect from the press in their treatment of Bredesen?

MORE: Matt White sees some progress by The Tennessean in its reporting on the General Assembly. In particular, "The Groundskeeper" points to articles on the new ethics bills. I'm not so optimistic.

UPDATE: Maybe some newpapers are coming around, though, and Matt may be on to something. The Kingsport Times-News - often decried as one of the worst papers in Tennessee over the years - ran a recent editorial calling for the permanent execution of the estate tax (or "death tax," for those that like the moniker). To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, "What is the heck is going on around here?"

MSM reads excellent blogs, like yours, and they see the future. Their days are numbered unless they do some better reporting. I think, or hope as the case may be, that the blogosphere is not only adding perspective to the public discourse but also influencing the quality of MSM coverage.

We can dream, can't we?
