Did they show? Never.
However, this morning's editorial page manages to go beyond their normal numb-skull regimen of tone-deaf meets dumb-ass exposition.
First we have a staff editorial pleading not to "abandon accountability of (school) vouchers." Great, good point...about eight months too late. A laser like focus for your subscription dollars ladies and gentlemen.
Second is something the Siren thinks she has never even seen before. The JT editorial staff has printed a letter to the editor from a candidate for office in support of himself - ON ELECTION DAY!
Yes, Roger Pfost, candidate for RUSD school board (and we know that because there is an article about the school board election on the front page) authored a letter condemning his incumbent opponents in the race, his reasons and a reminder to vote on February 21st. TODAY.
For a newspaper who refuses to endorse candidates, this is an action that flirts very aggressively with electioneering on the part of the JT. Giving free space to a candidate who is naturally supporting himself and asking others to vote on the day of the election - without giving the same benefit to the other candidates seems highly, HIGHLY unethical.
Look for an apology around October.
