Poll: On Top of the Story at the Mercury Newsless

One has to marvel at the subtle and sophisticated “news judgment” that purportedly takes place over at San Joe’s major metropolitan newspaper.

On one recent news day, the editorial experts at the Murk were presented with a menu of the following weighty news stories, every one clamoring for immortality on the mangled carcasses of innocent deceased trees:

Horse nose strips

Lack of Federal BLM Free Speech Area in San Jose

Veterans Administration “secret lists” scandal

Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist Resignation Over “Incontrovertible” Global Warming Science

Might the Murk’s long suffering readership feel “underserved” by the newspapers judgments?

As a reader of the Mercury News, which of the news stories mentioned do you think the newspaper should have given the most coverage?
