If a city pays a newspaper $100,000 to print only good news about it, that's both bad journalism and an outrageous use of tax money.
This story must sound strange to people who live here -- such a thing would never happen in Fort Wayne, for the simple reason that our officials would never have to buy good news. They get good coverage just because of what they do, because they are the best people ever elected anywhere. Our city council members are the wisest and fairest in the state, and the mayor sets the standard for what mayors everywhere should be like.
