Just how scary is the Idaho Statesman?

In view of Sen. Craig’s legal arguments about the “panic”, "fear" and “intense anxiety” he experienced because of an Idaho Statesman investigation, it seems fair to ponder just how scary the Idaho Statesman really is. First, there’s the newspaper’s slogan, “The Treasure Valley’s Best-Read Newspaper – since 1864.” If that’s not frightening enough, there’s the fact that the paper employs reporters, editors and photographers, and even a political columnist. (Disclosure here: I worked at the Statesman as a reporter and editor for five years before joining The Spokesman-Review 16 years ago.) The Boise daily, owned by the McClatchy newspaper chain, has a Doonesbury cartoon today that makes reference to the Craig scandal, but it’s on the editorial page. Basically, the Statesman is a newspaper – some consider that scary enough. The headline today on its editorial page is this: “Teen cancer survivor fights for awareness.”
