In today’s webcast, we report that an outspoken SC senator will introduce 25 resolutions to congress this week. Newsworthy? Absolutely – it’s timely, the number of resolutions is unusual, and the resolution topics (from what I gather in the reporting) are of interest to your readers.
The story turns, though, when we give the floor to the senator to discuss his intention to run for SC president. There are three major issues with this story. Before I tell you what they are, I want your thoughts.
