As Jason Embry noted in the Austin American-Statesman this morning:

Very rare to see a newspaper put an editorial on the front page. (I can’t remember any paper I’ve worked for in my 12 years doing that). Even more rare to put it above the fold. But above the paper’s nameplate? That’s what the Tyler Morning Telegraph did on Sunday, lashing out at Perry with the all-caps headline, TIME FOR RESPECT. Here’s the photo of the front page, which was posted online by the White campaign.

The full editorial is very, very intense. Go to the Typer Morning Telegraph's website to read it in full.

  1. and this is why every paper in
    the country is in trouble . . . (I can't remember any paper I've worked for in my 12 years doing that).  At least this paper has come out of the closet ans is not hiding their partisanship.
