What you say about someone else usually says more about you than about them.
Take the rambling screed by Andrew Kiraly in the current issue of Desert Companion, a slick magazine produced by Nevada Public radio, about the new ownership of the Review-Journal:
“A traumatic legacy of abusive owners, managers and operating philosophies are to blame for the stupid and terrible behavior: out-of-touch editorial screeds that sound like conservative Gilded Age cosplay, or a rightward slant that sometimes skews the front page, or badly concealed revanchist ideological crusades run through its political reportage. (For instance, if you recall the R-J’s coverage of the 2010 Harry Reid-Sharron Angle senate race, you might have received the mistaken impression that Reid was a slavering socialist, and that Angle was something other than a grasping, unhinged demagogue.)”
The parenthetical is the writer’s. Tells more about the viewpoint and political vector of the writer than anything about the actual news coverage of that race, which mostly was from Nevada Newspaper Hall of Fame journalist the late-Laura Myers. Any characterization of her coverage as anything but fair is delusional. The columns and editorials are another matter, but that’s not “coverage.”
