  •  I just thought it was a shitty paper (none)
    When I lived in Charlotte, the joke was that all of the stories in the Observer were from other papers.  

    Just because you're self-righteous doesn't mean you're not a hypocrite.

    •  Odd (none)
      that anyone should criticize a paper for that on DailyKos. I mean, if it weren't for articles written by other entities, where would the blogosphere be? It's all a question of which articles they select.

      And I have to say that apparently the only time Charles Taylor -- arguably the most corrupt member of congress outside of Texas -- gets any negative press is when the Observer throws a bone to their western readers. The Asheville Citizen-Times is missing in acion.

      •  sign of the times? (none)
        I haven't lived in Charlotte since 1989 (though I do visit).....not much internet access back then.  You got your local paper and watched the news.  Maybe a Time or Newsweek to supplement.  

        The Observer is thin and the articles aren't always well-written.  A couple of good reporters now and again, but they always moved on to bigger arenas.  

        Just because you're self-righteous doesn't mean you're not a hypocrite.
