What will I line the bird cage with in 5 years?

Salem Weekly?

Great post Brian! Good investigative journalism. It troubles me that this guy worked for some very right-wing papers for many years. The last thing we need in Salem is a daily newspaper publisher from the Tea Party.

Memo to Mr. Horne: Salem is NOT a right-wing conservative place like Orange County. The majority of registered voters are Democrats. Republicans only make up about 30% of the electorate here. Most of us voted for Obama in the last presidential election. Don't assume, Mr. Horne, that just because the "power elite" in Salem are Republicans, that most of your readers are. You'll lose even more subscribers if the paper tilts any further to the right.
