I wrote yesterday or the day before, that the DE had interviewed both mayor candidates, it turns out that is true. But, that doesn't mean the editorial board that writes the "Our Word" and picks the candidates has interviewed anyone. The news staff isn't involved with the editorial board.
I was educated on this and promised to pass it along. Don't blame the news staff for the editorials and don't blame the editorial staff for the news articles. The are separate groups inside the DE.
