The editorial writers should not be so eager to criticize that "alternative" newspaper New Times on ethical grounds. After all, the Arizona Republic stole the Best of Phoenix and The Rep concepts from New Times and even markets the free Rep stuffer next to the entirely free New Times. Does the Republic ever take a position both on and off its editorial pages with even some semblance of candor and disclosure that would ever run counter to the financial interests of its ownership even if it were in the best interests of the community? Hardly! Notwithstanding the fact that New Times has a liberal bias that is annoying on occasion, it does provide a counterpoint to the self-serving, pompous drivel the Republic exudes.
I hope you checked your hand for all your fingers after you shook his hand because I think you interviewed the devil himself.
