    Given that I’m as irritated about this as you, and still ticked off about the earlier list-posting. I’m going to play devils-advocate here.

    Is the paper not a private entity? With the right to publish or not publish the stories they choose to publish in accordance with their editorial policies?

    They’ve just relegated themselves to the dustbin of irrelevance. I can’t imaging the Roanoke Times has such a wide readership that they would survive long if a majority of the good folk o’ Roanoked decided to stop subscribing.

    Yeah… they have a right to publish as they see fit. And people have a right not to buy their lousy newspaper :)

    And we have a right to tell people why to not buy their lousy newspaper. It’s not libel if it is true. :)

    And those same people have a right to tell advertisers whose ads are accepted why they will not be patronized until such time as they quit advertising in that paper.
