Chron editorial board celebrates new METRO chief

THE CHRONICLE EDITORIAL BOARD breaks out their equivalent of mariachi bands and scratch-off cards today to celebrate new leadership at METRO.

It's the sort of uncritical cheerleading that the newspaper does so well for the area establishment, or in this case, the new establishment. Now, whether a critical/skeptical word* will find its way into print before the next big scandal and major change in leadership/establishment in Houston is an open question. Acting as the public watchdog of the establishment can sometimes conflict with the cheerleading mission, after all.

* Of the area establishment, that is. Those who do approach matters from a more skeptical point of view may well find themselves under fire from so-called journalists at the establishment newspaper.
