More than just government scandal attracted WPTF Radio to the John Locke Foundation’s work this week. Scott Fitzgerald interviewed Legal and Regulatory Policy Analyst Daren Bakst about his recent Spotlight report on gun rights for nonviolent ex-felons. In other news, the Web site highlighted David Bass’ Carolina Journal exclusive on a Republican congressional candidate who has signed a new “bonded term limits” pledge. This is the type of story that’s bound to be more readily accessible to newspapers across North Carolina in the days ahead, thanks to this week’s launch of the Carolina Journal News Service. Jon Ham started the service, which is designed to pitch CJ content to selected newspapers for republication. The Lincoln Tribune picked up the first story Ham pitched, David Bass’ report about a dubious incentive plan for biotech companies. Speaking of contributions to the traditional news media, Meck Deck blogger Jeff Taylor added his reaction to a WCCB Television story on Charlotte’s streetcar plans. In other news, Canton’s mayor referenced the John Locke Foundation’s work on local government finances within a column published in the Waynesville Mountaineer.
