    yes life is unfair.

    However you want to slice and dice it, newspapers in this state have not traditionally FUNDED initiaitve campaigns. Endorsed, yes, shilled, yes, ignored, yes, but FUNDED, no.

    And unless a big enough stink is made, the public won't know, because the "disclosures" have been very limited, when they exist at all. There is an implicit assumption by many readers that the editorial endorsement process is at least a process, rather than a complete fucking charade.

    For people here in the state, TVW is showing endorsement interviews from various newspapers, including the Yakima Herald-Republic. Which is -owned by the Seattle Time Co.

    So yeah, we got a problem.
