Can't Tell the Article Subjects Without a Scorecard

If the late and lamented Fraters Libertas Blog of Distinction Awards still existed (circa 2003 and 2004), this would have made the cut.

Worst Investigative Reporting by a Professional News Source

The age old wisdom of show business is that it doesn't matter what the critics say as long as they spell your name right. The Power Line guys can't even get that in this hard whack barked out by the City Pages:

Power Line barked openly and caustically a few years ago about Dayton as "an otherwise colorless, inept, demagogic artifact of alcoholic if not psychiatric rehabilitation." This morning, Scott Hinderaker uses the Dayton news to take a hard whack at the Star Tribune for allegedly burying Dayton's personal problems for years.

I'm guessing John Mirengoff and Paul Johnson will fire off a strongly worded letter to the City Pages editors immediately. And I don't even want to think about what the Hind Trunk and the Big Rocket might say.
