The Harrisburg Patriot-News - the paper of record in my long-adopted Pennsylvania hometown (where I live across the Susquehanna in a Cumberland County suburb) - has been in the national news. For embarrassing itself with a snarling, anti-First Amendment-sounding tirade against readers who dissented from the Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage. A decision the paper enthusiastically supported. Last Sunday, a rare missed-church morning, I looked up at Fox and Friends to find co-host Tucker Carlson grilling the paper’s editor John Micek on this kerfuffle. It did not go well for Mr. Micek.
Yow. How could this happen?
