I've been quite critical of Nevada journalists, even getting into it with deceptive eye candy from Fox 5 that used us. So-called journalists in this state generally are intellectually lazy and dishonest (I'm just a lazy writer with no editor and I'm open about my biases, so there). Our newspapers and TV news exist mostly out of habit and for advertising sales. It's rare that quality journalism is done.
Victor Joecks, of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, is not only an excellent commentator with a realistic out look. In his article from Dec. 21, he points out that journalistic integrity and curiosity is dead (and talks about guns).
In May 2018, I wrote a column headline, “The three questions Sisolak, Chris G. won’t answer.” The first question was, “How do you define assault rifles/weapons?”
Good points. Victor, thanks for being the best damn print newspaper reporter in the state and probably the best journalist, online or print, in Nevada. Keep up the good work.
