Glass Houses and Rumsfeld

Compare the results of current leadership of the Department of Defense and the Oregonian. Morale in the military is high; the Army exceeded its re-enlistment goals for deployed units by 15%. The Oregonian has not so much a matter of re-enlistment as downsizing due to subscriber loss. The Department of Defense is engaging enemies of our nation around the globe with the lowest rate of casualties in military history; nobody has ever done so much for so little cost. The Oregonian is taking its highest personnel losses ever. The Department of Defense is rewarding innovation from all corners of the globe to serve its vitally competitive mission. The Oregonian pays external sources a pittance for stories that can only be about local matters, despite trying to reach one of the most cosmopolitan and literate readerships in the country.

Editors in glass houses…
