The Juneau Empire is blatantly guilty of a breach of journalistic ethics and tabloid journalism. As a former Washington state legislator, I learned a long time ago, that in the newspaper business there is supposed to be a firewall between the news reporting side and the editorial side.
The Juneau Empire breached this firewall in their Monday, March 30 edition of the newspaper. A headline stated “A devastating’ attack on airwaves”. The article spoke to the cuts being imposed upon public broadcasting by a Senate Finance Subcommittee and their impact upon rural Alaska communities.
