I would like to post this small lament. Last year the Macon Telegraph sent to Atlanta Travis Fain, one of their regular reporters, to cover the General Assembly.
This year, they did not.
Last year Georgians were treated to some of the most sustained, regular, in-depth, and insightful coverage of the General Assembly that has ever been placed on the printed page.
This year, not so much.
The AP coverage fails to cover the nuance and depth of the issues, let alone the behind the scenes personalities Travis covered so well. Dick Pettys’s stuff mostly resides behind a firewall.
The Telegraph did us all a great service last year. Not so this year.
