GOP Candidate Cho Gets Another My View Column

The December 9, 2007 Chapel Hill News 'My View' column titled GOP chair Cho to challenge Price contained the following:

A former Presbyterian minister and tae kwon do instructor, Cho is a writer raising two children in Chapel Hill. He has been writing a monthly My View column for the Chapel Hill News. His column will go on hiatus during his run.

Now on December 26, 2007 Mr Cho has another column in the Chapel Hill News titled 'Soul patrol.' (It's not online yet. I just pulled it out of my driveway at 12AM.) At the end of Mr. Cho's column today is this excuse,

This is his last My View for now. Cho's column is on hiatus as he campaigns for the Republican nomination for U.S. House District 4.

To me this column contradicts the first one. His column was supposed to "go on hiatus." Second, its a clear violation of the News' journalistic principles. Will Congressman Price get a My View column so he can promote his personal values too?

I wonder if it is a rerun

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

First Things First

Why Price? Cho is not running against Price at this time, but against other Republicans. If he wins his primary and Price also wins his, then they will be opponents.

Good point Fred.

Either way, they should have immediately cut the connection between a candidate and their frontpage.

Of Course They Should Have

But the issue is as you stated it - he should not be on the front page. It is not about Price being at a disadvantage.

Just as Anglico posted,its my opinion that the state of our two local papers is moving way south.
