Each Saturday, the Northwest Herald has followed the example of the Daily Herald and published a series of “Thumbs Up” and “Thumbs Down” in place of an editorial.
Today McHenry County’s paper of record said, “Thumbs Down,” to candidates who did not attend last Monday’s candidate forum sponsored by the McHenry County League of Women Voters.
Even though that “Thumbs Down” applied to only one candidate–Jack Franks–the Northwest Herald failed to mention the Democrat’s name.
The coverage of the forum also failed to mention Chicken Jack’s failure to show.
The only article concerned the interchange between Democrat Ray Flavin and Republican Patrick Kenneally, both candidates for McHenry County State’s Attorney.
One must wonder why the paper continues to run interference for the Democrat.
