10/17/06  Political Contributions by Belo Employee

The issue you raise about Ronda Gibbons' contribution to a candidate endorsed by The Dallas Morning News is serious. 

Whether she works for The Dallas Morning News, WFAA, or one of the numerous suburban papers owned by Belo, she is still part of the media giant (Belo) which dominates the media market in Dallas County.   As a dominant provider of information,  Belo and its employees should be above reproach.  If you are a minister you should not preach morality on Sunday and sleep with a mistress during the week.

A much bigger concern of mine is that The Dallas Morning News endorses anyone.  They should stick to the facts and provide adequate coverage about the elected officials and what they hope to do when elected.  

The Dallas Morning News provides two sections on Sunday about sports while barely mentioning that there is an election on Nov. 7th.   Ever since The Dallas Times Herald was buried by The Dallas Morning News, the quality of our only daily paper has declined.  

I finally cancelled my subscription in disgust due to the lack of relevance to my need for accurate information.

  Ward politics is the Devil's key to the soul of the city council.  It is how some council members got themselves in trouble in the past.  It is the bait that will get others in trouble in the future. 4/6/8
