Laura Leslie’s reporting on the state budget has generally been excellent. Unlike most NPR material at both the local and national level (filtered, biased, and loaded as it often is), Leslie tries painstakingly to present both sides of any issue — as in this piece.
While no media outlet deserves the ‘fair and balanced’ moniker, a few dogged reporters remain in pursuit of that unicorn known as objectivity. Laura Leslie deserves credit and thanks in her efforts to arm citizens with good information and diverse viewpoints.
(Thank you, Laura.)
