Don't let fairness interfere with the editorial line

I love our little local daily.

Last week, The Post-Star ran an article on the seemingly outrageous demands of the South Glens Falls teachers union as presented by the administration.

It is unable to get a quote from the union rep but that didn't stop them running an editorial denouncing the teachers. I guess having a full picture of the story might not jive with the paper's longstanding anti-teachers union editorial line.

Today, the paper ran another article, this time with the teachers' side of the story. I can't link to it because, unlike the controversial original article and the denunciatory editorial, this one is not available online.

No word yet on if the paper will retract its hasty editorial.
