What is the point of this charade?
Atop the front of the Sun section in the morning paper is this motto: “Locally owned and independent.”
Today’s ad-free, eight-page section contains a locally written entertainment column and a full page of photos from a basketball game at the Thomas & Mack. Everything else is from wire services, including the lede story about Elaine Wynn. Usually the Sun has one locally generated story on the cover, but not today.
It is not because the Sun staff is not producing local copy. There are nearly a dozen stories on its website, but they are no in print.
I don’t believe any of the “most-read” stories listed on the cover ever appeared in print.
