A hometown newspaper with a local office, local owners & lots of local news

Even stars are expendable

Tucker Carlson, one of the most popular television personalities on Fox News, lost his job this week, to the cheers of liberals and to the tears of conservatives.

But then Don Lemon, a liberal talk show host on CNN, was fired, too. That news softened the blow for conservatives who like to scream about the “liberal media” (a phrase about as false as the election fraud claims) and irritated liberals who like hearing Don attack conservatives on his weeknight show.

I’ve never seen either program, except for a few clips on YouTube. Those shows don’t interest me, because they are obviously not news...
