Patriot News Editorial

Finally, the Patriot News is speaking out on disclosure from Reed and King. Their editorial confirms what I have long suspected - that the news media isn't getting the information it needs, either.

But here's where I differ with the editorial. Yes, the city should be forthcoming. But asking nicely won't work. It is the press' job to push, not ask. Use the Pennsylvania Right to Know Law, and sue for the information. If it is important for the Patriot to get access to Joe Paterno's salary, it's also important to get access to crime statistics. Sue 'em.
