Now, as a potential candidate you make an announcement like that on Saturday in order to get coverage in the Sunday papers. Especially the BIG regional papers like the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Nashville’s Tennessean, Johnson City Press and the one owned by E.W. Scripps in Knoxville. You know the one where Jack McElroy is Editor.
Well it worked everywhere except the E.W. Scripps one in Knoxville, the one where Jack McElroy is Editor. Where and When did it appear in the Knoxville paper? It happened on Monday in the Georgiana Vines column. Not only is Monday one of the least read papers of the week, but to place it in the least read column of the paper is a slap in the face to our state’s Lt. Governor.
Why oh why, Jack McElroy would you do this? Is it because you have a bias for the candidacy of the Knoxville Mayor? Is it because a certain business unit in Knoxville buys more of your papers on Friday then you typically print on any of the other 6 days a week?
Why, Jack McElroy do you have a bias?
