my understanding is that the Free Press ran this "blistering editorial" on the Front Page.

SPECIAL FREE PRESS EDITORIAL | A MESSAGE TO WASHINGTON

Invest in America
December 4, 2008

DEAR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS:

You don't want an economic disaster on your hands. Not when you could have prevented it. And not in times that are already the worst in a generation.

But that's exactly what you'll have — and more — if one of the three Detroit automakers goes belly-up for lack of a government-backed loan. There will be economic **** to pay — not just in Detroit, but all across America, including in your state, in your district....

...You can help them. And if you don't, make no mistake: There will be bleeding throughout the land.


more...


note/sidebar:
The Free Press is sending copies of this edition to members of Congress.

We have chronicled the U.S. auto industry since its birth, as Detroit became the world's Motor City, as cars and trucks changed the American culture and landscape, as assembly line jobs gave rise to the American middle class. Our journalists have reported the automakers' triumphs and exposed their troubles. We know this industry better than anyone.

We also know that while a newspaper needs to inform, there are times when a newspaper needs to speak up for what's right.

We know what automakers and autoworkers mean to this nation. We know what will happen if one of the auto companies is allowed to collapse. We know because this industry has been our story since it started.

And we know that America needs this story to continue.

-- Paul Anger, editor
