A lot of newspapers are pretty shy these days about running editorials; margins are so thin, it’s not worth angering the readers.
This morning, the Indianapolis Star isn’t like a lot of newspapers. It took the unusual step of putting an editorial against Indiana’s religious freedom law on the front page. It called for the state’s human rights protections to be expanded to include GLBT.
“It’s this important,” Karen Ferguson, the Star’s president and publisher, tweeted last night.
