Open Challenge

After I published “Dispatches from ESS: What Liberal Media?” I decided to do a little self criticism. I was managing editor of the Wellsboro Gazette during the same time frame as we studied in another newspaper (February, 2003). My next project will be a similar analysis focusing on the media outlet for which I was responsible.

Obviously, I am not the most qualified person to judge my own work (but I’m going to try anyway). So, I invite any one out there to review the newspapers that I helped publish. Here are links to .pdf files of all of the Wellsboro Gazettes between Jan. 29, 2003 and April 2, 2003. The paper is published on Wednesdays.

I have provided a greater time frame than I actually studied in the other paper. This is primarily because the paper had noteworthy events reported well after the actual invasion of Iraq.

If the results show that I caught the war fever as well, I will freely admit it with no excuses…but I am really hoping I don’t have to.
