I’m late by a day, but I have to point out Sherry Jacobson’s story in yesterday’s News that–for the first time in her many years on the Parkland beat–trumpeted bad news about Parkland’s management, headed by the saintly (in her eyes) Dr. Ron Anderson. This is not the first bad news about Parkland’s woeful mismanagement, but it is the first bad news to receive headline, subhead, and first paragraph treatment instead of being buried in the 17th paragraph of the jump. Did Jacobson undergo remedial reportorial training, or has the fog of unadulterated hero-worship started to lift? Doesn’t matter. What matters is that the newspaper is starting to act like a newspaper.
