Today's Rapid City Journal carried this "Journal Staff" editorial comment on part of Jordan Mason's successful campaign bid for a City Council seat:
THE BAD? Some people might consider Ward 4-elect alderman Jordan Mason to be a fine-looking young man, but plastering his mug across an electronic billboard last week on election day was a sign of poor judgment. Mason soon will be participating in Rapid City Council decisions about regulation of billboard companies. In a city where many people would like to see them banned entirely, using them as a campaign tool undermines his credibility as an objective decision maker.
No. Using them as a campaign tool dilutes the ad money available to the Rapid City Journal. He won. His ads on electronic billboards vindicate his decision to use electronic billboards.
WTF? This is what the Journal considers the worst thing to have happened during this cycle of its generally absurd "Good/Bad/Ugly" commentary? Phhhhh......!
