Bleeding Heartland: DM Register needs a better political editor
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
When the presidential candidates release plans to deal with important issues, such as education, global warming, or veterans' affairs, the Des Moines Register more often than not buries the story in the middle pages of the Metro Iowa section. That is especially true for the second-tier candidates. Tuesday morning I picked up the Register and saw a photo of Chris Dodd and Joe Biden on the front page of the main section. Wow, that's unusual. But what do you think the story was about? 'Both Dodd, a senator from Connecticut, and Biden, a senator from Delaware, each are hoping to emerge and knock out a front-runner. But both facing an increasing amount of questions about whether they are different enough for voters to tell them apart.'
