    MNI-owned Fort Worth Star Telegram In Trouble

    Pretty damning assessment of the paper on an article at Breitbart's Big Government.

    Headline: EXPOSED: TEXAS CRONYISM AND SECRET MEETINGS STEAL CITIZEN'S LAND VIA EMINENT DOMAIN

    Relevant excerpt: Why hasn’t the Fort Worth Star Telegram reported on a story in its own backyard? Especially considering the TRWD’s offices are located on the bottom floor of the newspaper’s own building? John Basham, a challenger in the upcoming TRWD election, said that he has repeatedly contacted the newspaper with all the allegations reported in this column, and others, since 2008. According to Basham, the newspaper ignored him. A check of the paper’s archives turns up few stories questioning the propriety of TRWD, and no investigative articles. When asked about this last week, two editors at the Star Telegram refused to comment. The paper has run a smattering of articles in recent weeks, but focusing on the election rather than alleged improprieties.
    Otherwise, the only significant mention of the TRWD was a full-page ad taken out in the paper last month, promoting the TRWD.
    As former Rep. Yost said, “Too often, no one is paying attention to what these folks [water districts] do”. One might wonder if that goes for the Star Telegram, as well.
