How Long Does It Take to Write an Editorial

Today's The Tennessean includes an editorial on legislation sponsored by Bill Frist. The editorial complains that a lobbyist for the vaccination lobby wrote the language protecting their interests that showed up in the bill.

This story was reported in the newspaper 8 days ago, and the editorial includes no information that was not known on the date that the story was published. I commented on the story the same day the story was published, arguing that there was nothing to be worried about. A.C. Kleinheider also opined on the story the same day, taking a view opposite of mine and closer to that of today's editorial.

The Tennessean's editorial page cannot be taken seriously if it takes 8 days to come up with opinion on the stories that appear in it.
