Heard in the Newsroom II: Once more, the Union-Tribune moderate-conservative editorially, but definitely liberal in the newsroom. Tonight, when Reagan's name came up one copy editor said: "Reagan disgusted me and he disgusted the American people."
The former I can't dispute, but the latter?
A Fox News Poll (scroll way down) shows that 65 percent of Americans say they supported Reagan's policies -- including 41 percent of Democrats -- while 19 percent were opposed.
Were the American people really "disgusted" by Reagan -- hardly.
Of course, the copy editor did have one positive thing to say about Reagan: "He was better than (George W.) Bush."
