Morning News Gives Short Shrift to Dallas Women’s March

The editor defends his paper's work.

Over the weekend, Mike Wilson, the editor of the Dallas Morning News, took to Twitter to defend his paper’s coverage of the march in Dallas. As Bradford Pearson, a former D staffer and a current editor at Southwest: The Magazine, had pointed out: “Largest march in Dallas in decades. Morning News gives it 300 words, two interviews, and a bunch of embedded tweets.” Seemed to me at the time that Brad was on to something. Then, this morning, I got to see for the first time how the paper handled the march in print, and I realized that Brad had no idea exactly how right he was. What you see here is Sunday’s front page. The story is datelined Washington and illustrated with a Getty image of the Capitol. A strange choice for the Dallas Morning News
