Just a thought

by David Safier

Instead of the Star printing two AP analyses of Obama's Oval Office speech, both pretty critical . . .

Obama promises progress on spill, but public grows leery

In address, president fails to note some facts of oil spill: Obama doesn't say gov't won't control compensation fund [I couldn't find a link on the Star website on this one] [Oh, and the subhead is inaccurate and misleading]

. . . how about printing at least one story about the speech? You know, one of those overview pieces of journalism that summarize what Obama said?

After all, the first duty of a newspaper is to give its readers the news — hence the name "newspaper." Analyses are usually secondary articles and side bars.

Just a thought.
