For all you Eagle employees out there:
So, I'm reading my J1 textbook, brushing up for tomorrow's classes (okay, planning kinda close to the last minute), and there's a graphic called "Media Worth Mentioning."
It's a list of the nation's best large newspapers (New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, etc.), but then at the bottom it list four "smaller" papers that have acquired national reputations for excellence.
On the list? The "Eagle-Beacon" of Wichita. You better believe I'll be mentioning that tomorrow, since they all know I worked there...
Of course, I'll have to write the textbook authors (the edition was published in 2003) and tell them they need to double-check and/or update their facts. Just like all those folks in Western Kansas, they must not have gotten word that the "Beacon" was dropped...
