I barely happened to notice this important news article, "Feds formally charge former Donovan aide Robert Braddock Jr.," in The Day on July 12, almost missing it because it was tucked away on the page 3 of the Region section, next to the obituaries. That same day it was on the front page of the New Haven Register, front and center, as any article about possible political corruption should be.
Why did The Day decide it was not newsworthy enough to place it where more readers would likely see it? The indictment was also the lead story on the 6 p.m. news on some of the local TV stations. I am an independent voter and would like to think that my local newspaper's reporting of the news is neutral and unbiased, but I sometimes wonder.
