The Competition

From Rex Smith's latest column (emphasis added):

"One of our newsroom's key initiatives for 2005 is a renewed commitment to watchdog journalism -- the serious reporting that sets great newspapers apart from the good ones. We are redoubling those efforts, with particular focus on our state government, which is appropriate for the newspaper of New York's Capital Region. We won't scrimp there."

If they would agree to practice watchdog journalism for the city government as well they might just steal my whole readership.
