The World editorial of 11/14/12, “Rethink the ban on earmarks,” is a perfect example of how editorial staff picks & chooses it’s viewpoint to suit it’s agenda.
In its editorial of 11/14/12, The World bemoans the “power shift”from elected politicians to professional bureaucrats (a viewpoint I happen to agree with), yet where was this concern when the “gang of two” (unelected commissioners), proposed a County Administrator (professional bureaucrat) and part-time commissioners.
Doesn’t take a genius to realize the administrator could follow his own agenda and part-time commissioners wouldn’t have a clue.
We all know where the editorial staff was, banging the drum in support of the administrator proposal. I ask again, is the editorial staff feckless or hypocrites.
