I’ve been very critical of John Rasche who reports for FranklinNOW, and rightfully so, primarily for posting stuff that’s much too late. And his editor gets some of the blame, too. When news happens it's no longer news when the story is published a week later.
But let’s give credit where credit is due. His articles have been published in a much more timely fashion. A meeting happens Tuesday and his story is posted Wednesday. Much better.
Now there’s still some work to be done, like asking tough questions. And I can’t say for certain, but I hope he’s not a “pillow.” By that, I hope he’s not being suckered by the last person he talks to on a story.
However, it’s nice to read the next day about a meeting that occurred the previous night.
