Capital Editorial

Our say: Departing lawmakers served Anne Arundel and Annapolis well, April 16, 2018.

Snider Comment

Yes, as Dr. Pangloss famously observed several hundred years ago, we live in the best of all possible worlds.

Tronc, the company that owns the Capital, must be very pleased that in Anne Arundel County we live in such a political world, as it means they don’t have to invest in reporters actually covering the statehouse and looking behind surface appearances. Instead, they can reprint as news our public officials’ talking points and press releases.

I was once surprised to hear one of Tronc’s local publishers say before a civic group: what’s good for Tronc is good for Anne Arundel County. How convenient that they live in such a universe!
