I have, from time to time, lightly cajoled various front page posters from Bull Moose to Demonbeck to SpaceyG to spend their time focusing on Georgia politics or national politics that have a substantive Georgia angle.
If Obama is coming to Georgia, perfect coverage. If Obama is offering up a text message for his vice-presidential nominee, no. If McCain is telling Saxby Chambliss McCain thinks him the idiot a lot of the base today now thinks Saxby is, okay. If McCain is saying the same about Lindsey Graham, not okay.
We all cover other stuff from time to time, but the purpose remains that this site is about Georgia news. We try to keep a balance of Democrats and Republicans on the front page. Frankly, I continue to think we need more balance and we also need to strive to be more objective, as opposed to championing a party line. Usually, we do a good job at all that, but sometimes we need work.
In any event, after again requesting that Spacey tone down the non-Georgia coverage on the front page, she informed me that I’d have to kick her off the front page entirely if I wanted her to stop and, likewise, I could trust that she’d make a big show of it.
Well, there you have it. Unleash the show.
I guess it’s the Reaganite in me, but I’m not going to negotiate to threats about making a big show of it.
