With Adelson as Owner, Las Vegas Paper Needs Independent Public Editor

WASHINGTON - Nevada’s largest newspaper should appoint an independent public editor with authority to monitor and fully report on conflicts of interest and other ethical issues growing out of the paper’s sale to billionaire casino magnate and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, Common Cause said today.

The non-partisan advocacy organization said a public editor, or ombudsman, at the Las Vegas Review-Journal could serve as impartial voice for readers. Once a newspaper mainstay, the position is a dying tradition at too many papers.
