“News partner”

For years I used to explain to folks that if you wanted to know what was going to be on the television news in Duluth you would have to read the Duluth News Tribune first. It was my way of showing the primacy of the printed page over TV journalism’s sound bites.

I was just looking for a sound bite on a Fox News story. This clip doesn’t have what I was looking for but I watched it again. I’ve got to say that suddenly the tables are turned. What shows up on Fox News now shows up later in the Trib.

I’ve also go to say that nothing this cogent or analytical has shown up in the Trib concerning Roger Reinert’s vulnerability. If you want the local news now I’d have to recommend getting it on the television these days. The Trib is lucky to have Fox as a plucky “news partner.”
