Finally a newspaper gets it right, The Daily Herald has talked about the value of printing factual information. Especially during the presidential campaign.

I suggest that the paper take notice of the L.A. Times and reporting of stories. When reporting on the Republican Convention and Rick Santorum's speech, the L.A. Times used this headline, "Rick Santorum repeats inaccurate welfare attack on Obama."

It seems that the Daily Herald chooses to take the stand that they are only a conduit for repeating information and should not editorialize by editing the news. In doing that they simply become worse than the politicians spinning their speeches.

The Fourth Estate used to mean something in this country. Printing a lie, when you know it's a lie, is no service to anyone.
