The Trib wouldn't run a press release from the governor. Instead, it would run a story reporting the press release, but putting it in context with contrasting views, facts and analysis. That's what we expect of good journalism.
When it comes to reporting on itself, though, The Trib runs its own public relations spin without critique or opposing viewpoints. Case in point: Managing Editor Terry Orme's "Some changes you will notice in The Tribune" (Tribune, June 30).
Orme puts the best spin on the changes, but the bottom line, which is buried, is that The Trib will have less content. The paper is shrinking, again.
