The Paper of Irrelevance

Yesterday, I chided The Tennessean for editorializing on an issue that had last been in the news more than a week before. Today, the paper of record in Nashville manages to go back slightly further into the history books to find fodder for its opinion making. The editorial concerns the state senate's rejection of a raise in the minimum wage. The General Assembly adjourned more than a week ago.

The Tennessean's editorial page is frequently criticized among conservatives for being biased. I have never shared in that criticism, because that page is the one place in the paper where bias is clearly appropriate. However, the editorial page of The Tennessean, by virtue of its inability to offer opinion on current issues addressed articulately and quickly by numerous bloggers before the newspaper manages to get to it, doesn't manage even to be relevant.
