How Dallas Media Voted in the Trinity Toll Road Referendum

No, we’re not finished talking about the Trinity vote yet.

If it seemed to you that coverage of the trinity toll road referendum leaned one way or the other, a look at where local journalists live might prove instructive. The news is supposed to reflect the city as a whole, and not certain neighborhood biases. Here, we take a look at the outcome of the Trinity vote, and, thanks to public records, where the people who shaped the debate call home. The purple areas represent districts that voted “yes” (anti-road), and the peach areas represent districts that voted “no” (pro-road). You might notice a peculiar grouping on one portion of the map. You might also notice that not a single Dallas Morning News Metro columnist actually lives in Dallas.
