The New York Times proudly displays its motto in its masthead: “All the News That’s Fit to Print.”
Apparently Sheldon Adelson’s Las Vegas newspaper is opting for: “All the News That Fits.”
While the paper posted a story online just after 6 p.m. Tuesday about that day’s hearing at the state Supreme Court over whether to allow an initiative that prevent the creation of sanctuary cities in Nevada to appear on the November ballot, the story did not make it into print. That’s something the Sun does.
Actually the Sun posted an abbreviated version of an Associated Press story on the topic before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
The Nevada Independent, which has no print version, posted a lengthy story before 2 p.m.
At least those versions were rather balanced in their accounts. The Reno newspaper posted a story after 4 p.m. under the editorializing headline: “Opponents rip into divisive proposed sanctuary cities ban at Nevada Supreme Court hearing.” The account also called the measure polarizing in a subheadline. The story itself was pretty straight forward.
