  •  Yup, free reign is the best kind! (0+ / 0-)
    As far as I can tell Anschutz seems to give the local editorial boards pretty much free reign in their coverage.
    Or else you'd live in a dictatorship, right?  So like George W. Bush said "Let freedom reign"  (which, btw, made a nice addition to my list of oxymorons!).
    •  Well no (0+ / 0-)

      Anschutz could for example direct that the editorial boards of the papers he controls never issue opinions supporting gun control for example.

      That wouldn't be censorship; only governments can censor.

      But it appears that it doesn't work that way; that the editors of his papers publish, as the paper's views, opinions that are generally reflective of the sorts of communities they serve rather than a standardized, one-size-fits all approach. Of course that is probably just a good business decision.
