Can Pat McCrory keep his word?

So will we get a follow up on Bev?


Did Governor Dumplin' keep her word?

So why are you here?

If both of you believe the N&O does not report the news, why in the world are you both still here commenting on its articles? Why don't you both head over to FOX or whatever media outlet reports the news to your liking? 

Answer to your question

No, not the N&O.  This so called news paper stopped reporting the news years ago. They seem to see their reason for being as entertainment and to entertain one cannot simply report news but have to make news. Or in the case of the N&O, make UP news.

The greater question...........

Can a newspaper report the news without showing bias?

"Let me make the newspapers, and I care not what is preached in the pulpit or what is enacted in Congress."
