DISCUSSION: DORDEA V. SWANSON, BY PROXY?
Readers of the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) will recall the soapbox editorial by Executive Editor Jeff Gauger of The Repository of not allowing proxies to "spin" the campaign for the candidates.
Apparently, that doesn't apply to the race for Stark County sheriff.
The Report is introducing a new feature today. Now on selected posts the reader can scan the graphic which comes with each and every report with the mouse - if a hand appears; then the reader can link directly to a third party article on.
In this instance, by passing the mouse over Dordea's face, the reader links to a letter to editor written to The Rep on Dordea and the same applies to the Swanson picture.
Question: Is the proxy "letter to the editor" fight a case of The Rep applying different standards to different races?
