Pension Drama Part II

Please follow and like us:

The headline story in last week's Lexington Herald-Leader said, "This is how cowards run government." It was in reference to the special session of the legislature called by Gov. Bevin. The story didn't include a single interview of proponents of fixing the pension. Nor did it include a broader perspective as to the urgency of fixing the state pension. And it was in the news section and not in the opinion section where it belonged. A reasonable observer could construe it as a hit piece on Republicans dedicated to doing their job and would certainly rather be with their families in the days before Christmas. The narrow perspective and biased reporting disregards overarching realities facing Kentucky and its teachers. And it's a big reason why people are turning to other sources to get their news.
